    20 Oct 2007 : HB9841

    Hi there,

    Just a few words to say that the guy which I sold the bus in 97
    contacted me yesterday.
    I heard that he sold the bus to an other man in Martinique a few time
    ago but it appears that this one never used it, never notified the
    changement of owner and eventualy left the bus neglected.
    Now the police ask my correspondant to move the bus urgently or it
    will be scrapped soon.
    So please note that this bus urgently need to be moved and is
    available for probably a few cents. The floor is bad and body
    converted but the engine, axle, etc are good and clutch replaced by a
    new one a few years ago.
    The problem is that the bus is in Martinique Island...
    But if you don't want to see this interesting vehicle scrapped, please
    act now !
    Danny Chabaud.

    Thanks to David Sykes for providing the resumé and photo of this bus whilst
    with Lancaster, and to Danny Chabaud & Mike Pyatt for the two other later
    photos, in France and in Martinique.

    This looks like my RMC 1458, although there were two at Le Master, only this one had a gold colour band a relic of its time on the X15 when it was converted to a bus. The other RMC 1503 is still there as far as I know.
