Pick'n'mix - possibly the most complicated I've ever posted. No description of where, but the 2 BOAC vans suggest airport or nearby, possibly an international one so Heathrow or Gatwick?? No other view - the only change in the sequence is the coach in upper right manoeuvring position.

You can't see anything clearly enough to be certain, but throwing caution to the winds, there are a couple of Bristol L/ECW service buses, notable for their large destination displays, one Daimler, and a fair few of what I would guess to be Leyland Tiger/Harrington coaches belonging to Southdown. The light coloured bus behind the one being moved looks like an AEC Regal.

Somebody will now say that they recognise the location and it's Prestwick!

Not Prestwick but possibly the other direction...

If Southdown coaches operated from Southampton, BOAC were still operating a flying-boat service from Southampton Flying-boat Terminal until 1950.

The two BOAC vans are Bedford O-type (left) and M-type (right).

Southampton would link nicely with other footage in this part of the film of the new rail terminal under construction.

Southdown operated from Brighton. The most elegant livery, an almost entirely Leyland fleet, after the Tilling Stevens had gone and before they got the Guys.

Southampton would be 'Hants & Dorset' if I remember it right.
