A very nice mixture - a parcels 116, GUV and 128. Ian believes that this was L243 or 343 (which may have been 50915 with an unrecorded 128). The GUV is one of the blue square conversions, note the gap between "Rail" and "Express Parcels" where "Air" used to be! Taken at Langley in 1976. Ian McDonald.
