Decades after its dissolution, Western National remains one of the most recognisable and beloved bus and coach operators in Britain. Covering a broad area encompassing Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Gloucestershire, it is a brand that fired the imagination of countless enthusiasts and served its community admirably. These images, from the camera of former Western National employee David Letcher, offer a rewarding insight into Western National’s heyday.
Published for the first time here in a selection curated by transport author Stephen Heginbotham, the photographs offer a richly rewarding and nostalgic tribute to a famous name.
