“A” section of the 130th (St.John) Field Ambulance left the camp for the front in a series of London motor buses. They went off to be attached to the 9th Field Ambulance (Guards division) in the trenches at Neuve Chapelle and were given a great send- off by the men remaining.  The London Transport Museum have in their collection at Acton one of those very same buses (pictured below), currently restored to its Western Front condition.
