The utility double decker was a product developed during the Second World War to counter the growing shortage of double deck buses as bus production had been halted or highly restricted during the early war years, with bus chassis manufactures and body builders being instead involved in production of essential military equipment. The Ministry of Supply thus allowed selected manufactures, including Guy, Bristol, Daimler and Leyland to produce bus chassis', while a limited number of bodybuilders were allowed to build bodies to MoS specification. These buses were allocated by the Ministry to operators on a need to have bases, with various combinations of body and chassis types appearing in many urban fleets across the country. The Utility type was used by London Transport between 1942 and the the early 1950's. Deliveries included 9 Bristol K5, 281 Daimler CWA6 / CWD6, and 435 Guy Arabs, some of the later deliveries had less austere styling, which allowed radiussed rear roof domes. Virtually all the London vehicles were used on Central Area routes, although some Daimlers did find their way onto the Green Line network when it was re-introduced following its wartime suspension.
