This delightfully retro bus was the Kenya hockey team's transport for the Melbourne Olympic Games in 1956.

Kenya earned a creditable 1-1 draw in the group stages against eventual Group B winners Great Britain. They ultimately finished 10th overall following 3-0 and 9-0 wins against the USA and Afghanistan respectively, and a 2-3 loss to Malaya in the classification stage.
