You’ll find more history on this company at Stephen Howarths website. Percy Tailby died in 1956 leaving Katherine George as sole proprietor until her death in 1965. then passed to Douglas & Bunty Marshall, the latter being the daughter of the Tailbys.
The above site includes this paragraph Since the untimely deaths of their spouses in 1955 & 1958 respectively, the company had been run by Mr. By the 1970’s public transport was in a state of serious decline.
I was present on the 1st of May for this running day at Bishops Lydeard and was delighted to see GNU 750 being started up and brought into the ‘bus station’.
The run went to Hestercombe House and Gardens but most of the gentlemen aboard (some eight or so of us) preferred to stand around the coach rather than visit the house and gardens.
A couple of other shots of this coach may be found in the 1968 Halifax Parade gallery, when the livery was slightly different.
The 8.6 litre Daimler CD6 engine proved to be less than dependable for double deck work, and became instead the standard option for CV saloons up to the early 1950s.
In its final form as the 5LW/20 it developed 100bhp at 1700 rpm, though, by that time, it was no longer offered in bus chassis.It is seen at Bishop’s Lydeard entering the Quantock Motors site. I wish it well in Lithuania, but admit to some qualms about such loving care being lavished on it. The CVD6 was the most common post-war coach, and then the CVG6. Until the Regent III/PD2 era, the 7 litre 5LW was thought adequate for single deckers.Only Tilling parsimony allowed the 5LW to flourish after the war.Manchester’s COG5 double deckers were very successful, and so unsurprisingly their first postwar Daimlers were CVG5s.
But with an unladen weight of around 8 tons these were less satisfactory, so CVG6s were then purchased until lighter bodywork became available in the mid-fifties (together with some lightweight chassis features arising from the development of the CLG5).
GNU 750 is a Daimler COG5-40 (8485) with Willowbrook (3208) C35F body, and dates from 1939.
