We are all ready to wave to all these people who gave us their lives when you think about it. Sometimes I wake up in the house, I have two, and sometimes I think, ‘How the hell did I get here?’

Two bus conservation enthusiasts have previously described their enthusiasm for participating in the Platinum Jubilee Choice.

Richard Dixon, 63, and Ivan Fisher, 42, co-own one of the buses – a 1950s bus – with his friend John Stewart taking part in a decorated parade of double-decker open-top buses for decades after celebrations. Mr. Dixon will be the conductor for tickets on the 1950s bus, while Mr. Fisher will drive the bus from the 2000s.

Mr Fisher, who is the funeral director, said: ‘It took us nine hours to get from Norwich because it has a top speed of 32mph.

‘We came on Thursday last week to decorate and bandage them. It took nine people nine hours for each bus. A gentleman who owns a bus from the 2000s was approached by a selection committee and asked if he knew anyone who could give a bus, and we took the opportunity because it is a great privilege to be involved. ‘
