Biographical history

Arthur Wilfred Coombes (26 Jan 1877 – 1954) was a native of Gibson (South Devon) and enlisted to serve in the Boer War but stayed in the area while using his medical knowledge to assist the medical corps at the temporary hospital that was set up at the Lieutenant Governor’s residence from 1898 to 1901. Afterwards he established a drug store at 79-81 St. Mary’s St. His wife, Alice, died of tuberculosis in 1929. A few years after this Wilfred turned the drug store business over to his former technician, Bill Laskey and became more active in community and political activities than he had been. He was mayor of Devon from 1932-35 and 1941-1945 amongst other civic endeavours.
