Advert for Blue Bus Services shows BRB645, a 1935 Daimler COG5 with Willowbrook 39 seat body, withdrawn in 1949 and sold to Stevensons of Spath near Uttoxeter.
The advert was one of a series devised by Mrs Elizabeth (Bunty) Marshall nee Tailby the daughter of the owner Percy Tailby. All the adverts featured various Blue buses and a pretty girl. Why the ruler only appears to be 8 3/4 inches long it is not sure. At one time copies of all the "ruler" adverts were on display in the Doctors surgery at Willington, it must have been a good market for Private Hire bookings
