Union Bus Service - South Africa?
« on: March 19, 2017, 12:29:21 PM »
We think (that is Art, Mal and myself) that this might be from South Africa - does anyone have any documentation on it?

Mal found a reference to a Union Bus Services in South Africa but that's all we have.

My search lead me to Jammu and Kashmir in India and also to Kenya. But to be sure I sent additionally a mail about this piece to Allyn Jacobs.

Perhaps we should mention this is the information that I found: (cWW2)

...the United Bus Service (at that stage on the verge of bankcruptcy) which operated between Alexandra and Johannesburg.....

Yes we were at cross purposes before.

Although Union ties in with the the former Union of South Africa.
