I am speaking about vehicles captured after the British evacuations in 1940 where former British vehicles were utilised by German forces......

Hi jose,
I believe your last bus is a Renault YFB 1.

Thar Ford V8 grille seems to be quite common on coachbuilt buses. Could it be identified with covered wheels?

"Photothread: Bus/Omnibuss"

The german designation is "Omnibus", only with one small "s", maybe a moderator likes to change the title of the topic afterwards....

Typical german nitpicking, we call it "Erbsenzählerei", sorry. :lol:

Weekend greetings

If somebody is interested: these pictures are taken near Belgrade in July 1941. This is "liberated" ex-Polish bus built on Leyland chassis, the German number plate is IZ-156263.

Image

These buses were built in 1938 for "Silesian Bus Lines" ("Sląske Linie Autobusowe") by the coacbuilder "Wytwornia karoserii i przyczepek samochodowych Josef Zagorski" ("Automotive body and trailers workshop Josef Zagorski") at Poznan (Posen).
"...and on the 8th day He made truck so that man, made on 7th day, had shelter when woman threw him out for the night."
