Wales and Edwards Floats
This United Dairies 3-wheeled Wales and Edwards float seen in the snow was registered in London in 1954. Photo posted to the Milko group by Don Reid.
Another Wales and Edwards 3-wheeler, Unigate's WXR 729 (fleet number 94/267) dates from 1959. It is pictured on Woodbridge Road, Guildford in 1981. Photo © by Peter Relf.
Another float of the same design, GMV 414B was also registered in London, this time in 1964. I have lost the credit for this picture, although I expect it was from the Milko group; please let me know if it's yours!
Bourne & Hillier's FLM 632C, believed to be ex-Unigate, is seen in Kent in the 1980s. Photo by Dave Fane.
Braziers DME 683A, another ex-Unigate float, is an example with no headlight. Milk floats with A-suffix registrations are few and far between. Photo by Dave Fane.
From one extreme to the other - Dairy Crest's YLE 950G, pictured somewhere in the London Borough of Lewisham, is unusual for this type in having two headlights. Photo by Dave Fane.
HRN 619G was operated by Express Dairies in Waterloo, Merseyside until quite recently. It is seen on St. John's Road. Photo by Dave Root.
