Hi. My late father Tommy Coombe drove for Devonways whose garage was on the corner of Elm St and Old Hall St, also for David Tattersalls whose garage was on Cobden St, Duke Bar.

I have some recollections from the late 50s/early 60s but sadly no photos.

If I can assist in any way then please drop me an email and I will try and jog the old brain cells into action.


M. Coombe.
