Hi Treebuster
I have received a very detailed reply from Torquay Library - so it is definately worth contacting them if you have not already done so.  Unfortunately they found no mention of my Uncle - but they did search very carefully and also found some obituaries.  Apparently they have a gap in their records for councilors from 1948 to 1952 so they recommended that I also contact the Devon Record Office and the West Country Studies Library.

They were very helpful
