Do you recognize anyone?

Don’t know the year but it has got to be a Tilbury club outing as my Dad is pictured. I would say before the war as he has hair. After the war finished the shock of being torpedoed in the Med I think led to him losing it.

  • Hi
    This coach dates from May 1935 and it was requisitioned from its owners Westcliffe on Sea by the War Department in 1940. It has WW2 black-out hoods to its headlamps which suggests the photo was taken during the war when possibly in use with the War Department – even though it still says Westcliffe on the side.

  • I wonder whether the coach is post-war. Which one is your dad? What was his name?

  • Hi John my dad is 7th from the left as you look at the photo wearing a waistcoat tie and what looks like a flower in the button hole or a hankie in his top pocket.I would say it is pre war and probably a Tilbury Tute outing.I can not remember my dad having hair like that (only around the sides) I think the shock of being torpedoed on a minesweeper in the med led to the loss but he never spoke about it I only learnt of this after he passed away.
