So farewell then Reg Varney

Reg Varney has died at the age of 92. Console yourself by visiting the On the Buses Tribute Site.

And Andrew Collins reminds us:

On 27 June, 1967, Reg Varney was the first person in the world to use a cashpoint machine. The first ever electronic ATM was installed at Barclays Bank in Enfield, North London, and for reasons I have yet to specify, Reg was the first to use it.
He also says "Anyone younger than 40 will presumably struggle to place Reg, but it is their loss."
