(Numberplate transfer) currently on 2008 SEAT ALHAMBRA

ref: This Morris former ambulance is seen in use as the "Wootton Parish Bus" on the Isle of Wight.  I believe that this vehicle was originally registered VDL 1, and was the St.John Ambulance at Freshwater.  Certainly the registration VDL 1 was subsequently transferred to a later St.John's vehicle.
