I remember Bob Clarke, Frome Ave wasn't it, and the escapade with Les at a Chinese restaurant, oh happy days, and two days in aug 64 with Les's sister Susan.

Hi Garth, you say Roy and Susan were once married, do you know what happened, did they part company naturally, what occurred.
Thanks to Barry Wild!

My brother Brian Potts, still driving steam trains, narrow guage and preserved locos, at 79 years of age in Australia, informed me that his Flixton pal Neville Hulton died recently. Neville's brother Edwin a pal of mine, pre-ceased him some time ago. Their peer group, all Flixton lads, Tommy Fenny, Keith Malcolm, and "Satch" alas, also gone. Good Flixton lads - I knew them well 1940s and 1950s.
Thanks to Bob Potts!

Does anyone have any information of the bus company Tetlow & Collier from the early 1900's. I believe they operated from near Chassen Road. Any info would be gratefully received.
Thanks to Eric Tetlow!

There is a reference to this on times gone by On page 846
Thanks to Pirip!

Re appeal for info about Tetlow and Collier. There is a an unpublished manuscript freely available on shelf at Local Studies, Sale Library, Trafford. The title is MOTOR BUS SERVICES IN URMSTON 1907 - 1928. Author Bob Potts 2006. And it records a full and well illustrated history of Tetlow and Collier,s bus company, including reliable and impeccable sources. Their company known as the Blue Motor Bus Services was active from 1923 to 1928. Prior to that period Tetlows pioneered the first Urmston to Blackpool motor service in 1920 with a 14 seater open coach.
Thanks to Bob Potts !
