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.

Just come across this via Google, so apologies for being so late!

Eric Shutt was my grandad and I'm sure we've got an old coach photo we'd be willing to share. I'd love to learn more about Shutt Brothers.

Please get in touch if you're still interested.
