Plate is xxx 764, with probably some combination of H/M/N/W for the 3 letters. Buses On Screen says Bedford OWB.

Found this reference "...the splendid footage in the British Transport Film Collection - Reshaping BR - Work in Progress-Bristol - which has some wonderful minutes of arrivals and departures at Patchway Bus Park and Filton Church in 1949/50, including a brief glimpse of OWB HHW 764 (258), I think, apparently departing for Henleaze Lake on a workers' special."

There's also the Oxford Die-cast 1:76 model 76OWB010 of a Bedford OWB Single Deck Utility Bus HHW 21 for Bristol Tramways.

HHW series was Bristol, Oct 1942 to May 1943 with the first 1943 plate being HHW 359. So the Oxford model was 1942, ours 1943.
