I have received the following picture and enquiry. Sent to Jack for VL too, but in the meantime;

Hi
 
This is a somewhat left field and needle in haystack enquiry...!
 
I am researching charabanc operators from the 1920's on the Isle of Wight. A company on the Island, Messrs Pink Bros of Totland owned and operated a 3 axle Lancia charabanc during the twenties and despite having a few photos of the machine (which was incredibly stylish for the era), we dont have a registration.
 
Long shot, but would you be able to assist in trying to identify this rarity? Is there a database of such vehicles maybe - or if you could suggest someone who has some knowledge of these vehicles who may be able to assist, I would be really grateful.
 
A photograph is attached in the slim hope the vehicle can be identified.
 
Many thanks for your time. Appreciate any assistance available
 
Kind regards
John Haines

Fascinating. I wonder if it was a local adaptation or a special order chassis from Lancia. The Omicron triple decker is the only 3 axle Lancia bus I can think of and I seem to recall they were a special order.

Hi Richard, this is an enquiry from a group outside the club. What is the background of Shalfleet?

This was from my 'Old Buses' LMC forum thread June 2013.

The photo in question appeared on this website and I did include it in the thread. Hope the website still works and interested to hear more about it. Richard
