Alastair ,How I loved the visits with Jim, I too shared your love of the sound of the old bus engines ,music to my ears. They reminded me of school days in Scotland. i would have loved your Never Without A Tie to have been published as an Audio book for the sound of your voice would reduce me to tears of laughter. I loved your sense of fun .As friends we love and will miss you. If their are old buses where you are going save one for me , thankyou dear friend for the coffee ice cream too .

JIm Here!
   I first met Alastair in the late 1970's when he used to visit the Dept. of Experimental Psychology to service our printers, teletypes etc. I was his point of contact so we chatted a lot, we both being EX RAF in common Over the years he kept my family supplied with Speakers and Audio equip which he had repaired. I think he worked for a company called Extel, then went on to work driving buses for Tappins. We visited regularly for a good no. of years until a few years ago. I always had a Christmas card and some photo's of his grandchildren whom he was very proud of, and had loads on his computer.
The one thing I managed to do was to let have some better computers then his current one.There is a lot more memories which are too many to relate here. My wife always looked to the ice cream drizzled with CAMP Coffee
My good fortune to have met you in our mutual life time..Bye Alastair

I have known Alistair for over 55 years. He always made me feel at ease and always made me lough. He was a rebel ,out with the new and ordinary and in with the old and less ordinary. Rest in peace my friend,

No-one left to share childhood memories with. Remember good times when we were young - your radio corner, your LE velocette motor bike, the smart person in uniform I didn't recognise when you came home on your first leave from the RAF, your amazing ability to turn a pile of scrap into something which worked. I'm glad you have the love of your children and grandchildren. If there's an afterlife, I hope you find buses there.

Dad, you were and are so precious to me and your granddaughters Ioanna & Georgia...and as time goes by your loss is ever the more painful...Such a beautiful kind gentle soul..a true gentleman..super intelligent..an eccentric character who loved fixing things..and wanted nothing more than to see everyone happy and make them laugh...I'm truly blessed to have been able to call you my father...and my best friend.You were broken down in life by the people you loved and gradually through ill health became a recluse...You were there 4 me ...always...and in my darkest moments...and I was there for you too...I love you Dad...I always will...Time nor death will ever sever the bond we have...I know that you're at rest now...no more suffering...but for me life will never be quite the same...sleep well Dad

I will forever greatful to Alister he always made sure he went to see my dad (his brother) every weekend, sit and talk to him about buses and what they done as children. They are now rejoined talking about buses and with my grandparents from both sides. Now this is your time rest

With his fund of hilarious stories Alastair could instantly transport you to places far away and times long ago. The characters sprang to life, their voices  rendered with uncanny accuracy. We shared a love of old machines. Alastair was generous in helping me get my pre-war Atco lawnmower back in shape and in reviving electrical bits for our Crossley double-decker , which I only wish he could have ridden in again, and for his kind offer of garage items, which will aid its continued restoration. It was sad that in recent years joint pain marred his enjoyment of historic bus events. I'm grateful to have had such a maverick and entertaining friend for so many years. God Bless.

Dad was a funny, intelligent, eccentric man. He was the most obsessively organised person I know, labelling everything in his garage down to every nut and bolt and also a massive hoarder like me lol
A good father and a kind person. Can't believe he's gone.

Forever the archetype eccentric public school gentleman who would rather swallow his pain and fall on his own sword than allow anything untoward to happen to his children. We will miss you so much. I don’t think you ever knew how much we truly loved you.

Alastair sat with his brother Chris and told him stories each week of their time as children, I was so grateful to him, also he kept in touch with me through Facebook, now he is with his brother and out of pain, God Bless until we meet again.

Alastair, you were the most honourable, principled man I have ever had the pleasure to meet. You were sadly detached, either by opinions or geography, from your children at the time of your passing, but I hope you are able to see how keenly they feel this. They would all have wished to be reconciled with you before you left. We love you.
