David Cooper Neville Mercer’s book Super Prestige 38 gives a good account of this operator which later became G W Bull, selling to White’s of Calver on the death of Mr G Bull senior in 1988.Welcome to western antiques and collectibles where quality vintage knifes, authentic old west conchos, antique cowboy leather goods, vintage saddles, old black powder rifles and many other items will be offered for sale as they come into stock at Cochise Leather Company.

I cannot trace a Bristol LHL registered OXB399H, unless it was an import from Ireland that was re-registered. It certainly seems to be 1970ish registration and XB is London.

Were there any of these coaches ever registered in the Irish Republic? 25/01/18 Coloured Destination Blinds Barrow CT used coloured destination blinds (red, yellow, blue and green as well as normal black/white).But then I thought you can see them everywhere anyway.Hell myspace and facebook have loads of dating sites.)
