CHANGE OF SPEAKER
Roy Larkin will be our speaker on 25th January owing to the unavailability of Col. Bessette through illness
Roy will talk about Omnibuses on the Western Front. He will describe how the omnibus found its way to the Western Front with brief histories of each of the Omnibus Companies in France, from the pre-war War Office trials to the work in France & Belgium.
Roy has had a lifelong interest in road transport history with particular emphasis on the WW1 period. He is the author of two books about the omnibus in WW1, and a biography of Ernest Holmes from his WW1 service with 62 Coy ASC through to the Ministry of War Transport heavy haulage during WW2.
