Dear London Transport Museum,

Hi,

a few years ago, before his death, my Great Uncle, Tom Morris recorded an interview describing his life as a bus driver during the early to mid part of the 20th Century.
I was sent a written transcript of this and did ask if the audio part was available.

It was during a trip to the museum, that he identified one of the buses on display as the one he had once driven, and it was verified by one of the curators.

Tom passed away 17 years ago now, it would be great to have a copy of this if possible.

Regards

Keith

Yours faithfully,

K MARTIN

Dear Mr K Martin,

It is definitely possible to receive a digital copy of the recorded interview. Since it was recorded on audio cassette tape it will take some time to confirm the digitalisation process but I will be in touch shortly regarding this.

Dear London Transport Museum,

You helped me with finding audio files of my Great Uncle Tom Morris.
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/l...

Unfortunately the copy I had stored in a Cloud system is inaccessible and have lost the files.
I was hoping you could be so kind as to send them again, I promise I will look after them better.

Thank you in advance

Yours

Keith
