Sentinel ODE 182 new to Edwards Bros, Crymmych, Pembrokeshire in 1952 arrived at Barry on Sunday 13th November.  It has a body framed by Welsh Metal Industries of Caerphilly and chassis and running gear from just over the Welsh border in Shrewsbury where Sentinel were based, it is a rare STC6 meaning it has a 6 cylinder engine.  It sat at Crymmych for decades after withdrawal but was saved in the early 1990’s in more recent times it has lived in Yorkshire where previous owner John Hinchliffe restored the majority of the body and interior, he recently decided to concentrate on his other bus and so placed this important vehicle on ebay.  ODE and spare engine are now safely back in Wales for the completion of the restoration.  Anyone with information on the bus or original livery colours is asked to make contact.
