To mark the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, the Regimental Association, Corgi has announced a special celebration set in conjunction with the Go-Ahead Bus Group of the commemorative livery that is carried by two of Go-Ahead’s Wrightbus vehicles; one based in Newcastle and one in London.
