I have just had a look at Bus Lists on The Web website under the chassis lists section which gives body numbers for eight C1s, none of the C2s, but all the C3s and C4s!

The C1 body numbers given are;

3301 KHA301 Du 47501
3307 KHA307 Du 47509
3308 KHA308 Du 47508
3311 KHA 311 Du 47512
3319 KHA 319 Du 47524
3323 KHA 323 Du 47541
3340 KHA 340 Du 47542
3341 KHA 341 Du 47520

I have been shown a publication in the past by The PSV Circle, or The Omnibus Society which gives a list of BMMO vehicles with body numbers, but it may have featured Pre-War SOS buses only.
Over to other more knowledgeable enthusiasts to answer that one!

I have checked the books in my collection and I can only find the 'C' numbers which were allocated by BMMO.
