RLH 32 began in 1952 with London Transport's Country area green livery, starting at Guildford but spending most of its career working from Addlestone garage.

Withdrawn in 1970 and used for a few years by Lesney Products, painted blue, transporting staff.

Acquired by the London Bus Preservation Group for 2 years, during which it was painted red.  Preserved from 1976 by an enthusiast club and reverted to original green, being kept in Merseyside.

Purchased by David Pring of Timebus in 1997, with bodywork and interior restoration undertaken gradually since then.

Painted in its current Samuel Ledgard colours in 2007 to represent similar RLHs that worked with them (although this one did not)
