Site Visitor Brian Aldred
has sent me some photos of his newly restored BEA
Anglia Van - Reg No 402 UXJ
Here is what Brian had to say ...
are some photos of my recently restored 307E Van.
Bought as a wreck from a local scrapyard for
£200, a 3 year restoration, with the help of
friends, has produced pleasing results. I have
done it in a post 1968 BEA colour scheme (the
flying jack I believe it was called)
A friend of
mine was an aircraft fitter at Manchester
Airport, and he told me that the Anglia Vans they
received at Manchester were second hand cast offs
from Heathrow. I hope my efforts have produced a
credable replica of a BEA van."
