I have one but I dont own the copyright but I can tell you a little about the company if you so wish, unless you are the same gentleman who I have been talking to some time back via "Flickr" in which case you know as much as I.

Yes thats the one, if you look closely at that pic mentioned I save a suspicion the coach behind it is also owned by Ashmores. For a small concern they did occasionally achieve mention in the press, they get a mentionin the 1966 buses annual in an article about AEC Renowns, the tri axle single deck variety and they are probably the first to have recieved a Bedford VAL twin steer with Bedfords own Diesel a VAL 70, as opposed to the earlier VAL 14 with Leyland engine.
