    I have now been able to ascertain that the re-classifying of Motor Coach Companies to Troop Carrying Companies took place when the MCC was re-equipped from impressed motor coaches to brand new purpose built Bedford QLT (where the T denotes Troop Carrying) 4x4 trucks which they gave the company an "off-road" capability. This then rendered the coaches redundant.

    I wonder if the possible Motor Coach Company at Bannvale House was 3rd Motor Coach Company which does not seem to appear on the Feb 42 Order of Battle?

    When did 32nd and 37th MCC's move to Northern Ireland?
