From the Publisher:

The story of the development of British Coaching
Its designs were market leaders and the close relationship with Bedford saw its products reach a large and widely spread range of customers. During the war it built aircraft fuselages alongside utility double- and single-deck buses. By the 1950's Duple had taken over Nudd Bros and Lockyer to create Duple (Midland), later also taking over Willowbrook. In 1960 it made its final acquisition with the purchase of HV Burlingham of Blackpool, to where it moved all production in 1970. Unfortunately market demand - and Duple's quality - fell steadily leading eventually to the operation being sold to, and then closed by, rivals Plaxtons of Scarborough ending the story of a one time market leader in British coachbuilding.
