I've had a trawl through the various books I've got on B'head Corp. buses. The only references I can find to non-passenger stuff are the various old buses that were converted to recovery vehicles, tree loppers etc. The Austin van is a mystery.

Some folk down at the Tram/Bus Museum have an in-depth knowledge of the Birkenhead's fleet. Might be worth asking ?

Might be mistaken but it looks like it's parked outside the old Whitbread/Birkenhead brewery site in Livingston st, next to the Pub The Old English Gent.
