Daisy Bus Service – Bell Punch

The Daisy Bus Service Bell Punch Bus Ticket

I have had to lighten this shot so it can be read it is printed on a very dark maroon board. It is possible to read under the name Daisy Bus service that the proprietor was G Lewis. The ticket was printed by Bell Punch London.

The Daisy Bus Service of Broughton near Brigg ran a daily service year-round from Brigg to Scunthorpe and a summer-only route to Cleethorpes (then a popular seaside resort). They were probably best known for operating the only Dennis Pelican ever built, a former demonstrator with Duple Midland bodywork. Intended to compete with the “second generation” of underfloor engined chassis such as the Tiger Cub and Reliance, it found no takers.
