    I believe the figure in the foreground is Bert Young who
    drove the Coombe Lodge estate lorry for many years. The vehicle
    usedc as the ‘Blagdon at Play’ float in the picture is almost
    certainly the estate lorry.

    Yep! there he is again, my grandad was brilliant, when i was about 10, if ever he saw me in ther village he used to stop and pick me up in one of the estate lorries and i’d help him with his chores at the dairy of coombe lodge or maybe drive up to the keepers cottage high up in the woods…. Happy days!
