The First D/D Bus to Go Around the World
Can a double-decker bus circumnavigate the globe?
In 1967 the Essex bus boys set out from Leigh on the Sea, England, to find out.
The Winter 2018 Lincolnshire Vintage Vehicle Society article tells the story.
From 1967-1969 the Essex bus boys met thousands of people who helped us on our way. Thank you to all. We’d love to hear from you and share recollections. Sign up here. See the bus (below).
