Stories from YBC past

C. 1948-1951


Up until recent years Drakes Pride’s Trade Mark was 'Sir Francis' on Plymouth Hoe'.

In 1999 Drakes Pride visited Drake’s home of Buckland Abbey and made a presentation to the National Trust of a set of woods. This picture shows the Managing Director of Drakes Pride presenting the bowls to Doreen Johnston, who was the Ladies Captain of Yelverton Bowling Club at that time.
