Twelve Royal Tigers: The Complete Story of the Coa&hellip by Michael Eyre
This is a very high quality production in terms of layout, illustrations, typeface, I could go on. It's certainly the best quality bus book I've bought in more years than I care to remember.

The narrative is excellent as well, following the emergence of two coachbuilders in the post 1945 years, their relationship with a well known coach operator, the eventual demise of one company and the survival of the other in the aircraft industry.

Highly recommended.

One tip though, buy it direct from the Classic Bus website, you may save yourself a couple of pounds on the cover price.

The narrative is a good read, as is to be expected from Mr. Brown. I would have liked a bit more technical detail, however.
