Charles Dunbar (1900-1993) began work as an editorial assistant on a London weekly newspaper in 1919 and from 1921-1930 he was circulation and transport manager for an evening newspaper company.

In 1933 he established his own express parcels delivery company, 'Red Arrow Deliveries' and was the first chairman of the National Conference of Express Carriers. During the Second World War he worked for the Ministry of War Transport and, later, in Belgium for the Inter-Allied European Central Inland Transport Organisation. He became a freelance transport journalist and transport consultant and was the first editor of 'Buses Illustrated'. He published 'The rise of road transport 1919-1939' (1981). In 1968 he was awarded the Crow medal by the Chartered Institute of Transport.
