Dubber Wolverhampton 1978

In Memoriam

The unforgettable Dubber died accidentally on a retirement holiday in 2009.

In this mid-seventies picture he paces out rough ground for colleague Norman Kay at the wheel of Scania 110 VHX 678G. They are following the eccentric yacht builder Paddy Power across fields near Wolverhampton, to deliver his unusual PISCES 1 to Gloucester Docks.

Dubber was irrepressible, ingenious, brave and resourceful, a great driver, a good debater and a damned good union man. We miss him.
