AUTUMN SCENE - THE PUNCH BOWL: An AEC Mk V from the Guildford branch of British Road Services, trundling down the Portsmouth Road, at the Devil's Punchbowl near Hindhead, 1960s. As for the B.R.S. it was said that if 10 lorries were needed private hauliers would run 9, and the B.R.S. would run 11 ! And old time drivers spoke of driving lorries with tread on their tyres for the first time in their lives when the B.R.S. was formed after the war and they became Nationalized.
