Introduced in 1910, the London General Omnibus Company (LGOC) B-Type was London's first successful mass-produced motorbus, able to cope in the chaotic and overcrowded city.

After the outbreak of the war in 1914, London buses, along with their drivers and mechanics, were commandeered for the war effort. The buses were fitted with protective wooden boarding and painted khaki for camouflage. They transported troops to and from the Front Line and were put to use as ambulances and even mobile pigeon lofts.

Over 1000 LGOC vehichles went on war service, most to France and Belguim, with some travelling as far afield as Egypt.
