Thats all I know about Bond Brothers.

Author: Jeroen

In Dutch, my homelanguage: Ik ben Jeroen, tot januari 2015 was ik al dik 26 jaar werkzaam in een psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in een stad vlakbij Werelds grootste havenstad Rotterdam. Eerst als verpleegkundige/begeleider op high care, later op afdeling dubbeldiagnose (verslavingen) en ook nog een tijdje als administratief medewerker. Ik heb een spierziekte "Poli Myositis" (alle spieren zijn ontstoken) daardoor weinig energie. Sinds augustus 2015 is daarbij de diagnose Kanker gesteld, en ben ik helemaal arbeidsongeschikt geworden en zit middenin de behandelfase. Gelukkig ben ik daarnaast getrouwd, vader, en opa, en heb de nodige hobby's. Een daarvan is transportmiddelen verzamelen en daarmee een blog schrijven. Dit blog begon met bussen, maar nu komen ook sleepboten, auto's trucks en dergelijke aan bod. Kijk en geniet met me mee, reageer, en vul gerust aan. Fouten zal ik ook graag verbeteren. In English: I'm Jeroen, till januari 2015 I was already 26 years working as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital, near Rotterdam, Worlds biggest harbour with more than 98 nationalities living within it's borders. First I worked on closed high care ward and the last years on a ward with mainly addicted people. I liked my work very much. In 2007 I got ill. I got the diagnose Poli Myositis, a musscle dissease. Al my mussles are inflamed. And last august I got another diagnose. Cancer. It's plaveicelcel carcinoma and treated with Chemo and radioation. So I've even less energy than the last years. Still I try to make something of my life and the blog is helping with surviving with some pleasure.

One thought on “BOND Brothers busbodybuilders Lancashire England UK”

  1. A few corrections for you. The builder of bus bodies was S H Bond Ltd, latterly of Leestone Road, Wythenshawe, Manchester. They did a lot of refurbishing of wartime bodywork, but built few complete bodies. The only ones of which I have knowledge were ones for Ashton-under-Lyne and Bolton corporations, and the independent operator South Yorkshire Road Transport. Unfortunately that means that quite a few of the above photographs depict other than Bond products.
    Bond Brothers were an operator based at Willington, County Durham, and didn’t operate any vehicles with Bond bodies.

    1953-dac85 Body is by Harkness (of Belfast) rather than Bond, but both Harkness and Bond did use Metal Sections frames.
    1953-leyland-PSU1-13 Body though to have been completed by Bond on Burlingham frames.
    1956-but-9612t It’s actually a 9641T, but the body is not by Bond, it is thought to be by Bruce on East Lancashire frames.
    bond-brothers-aec-reliance This is Bond Brother the operator.
    bond-brothers-aec-reliance Likewise.
    bond-brothers-bristol-ecw Likewise.
    guy-arab-iii Body is not by Bond, it’s thought to be by Pickering.
    AEC-Bond-Brothers-Bodywork Body is actually by Park Royal.
    lancaster-corporation-e28093 Body is by Crossley.
    lancaster-corporation-aec-regal Body is by Strachans.
    lowestoft-aec Body is by ECW.
    aec-bond-brothers Body is by Weymann.
