Dawsons/Bridgman butchers

Anyone heard of the above co,s,Dawsons butchers traded in the 60,s with about 12 shops around the city, Run by a man called Len Carkett, He retired in the 70,s and sold out to Amos Bridgman,
He had shops in Exeter,Torquay,Exmouth etc, He traded as Bridgman of Devon & sold out to Matthews butchers in the 80,s,
Matthews was a Surrey based co with 250 shops they got taken over by Dewhurst who sadly went in 1996 ,
Selling a few to Lloyd Maunder who still trade as West Country Butchers,
To sum up if you have memories/pics of Dawsons,Bridgman,Matthews, Mills butchers,Eastmans, Dewhurst &Lloyd Maunder
you will make a butchery historian very happy, Regards Finney,

I have one of the biggest collections of butchery memorabelia, Mainly the co,s & local Dev/Som which i am willing to share .
