There is a Wilsons Fun Fair in Birmingham,based in Reditch.I cant remember if it was Bob or Tommy Wilson that i saw as i brought an ERF generator truck off them back in the early 90s.Its quite possible that they might be related as many fairground showman are.

Bob Wilson Fun Fairs are from Birmingham and Wilsons Amusements are based in Reddiich.

The late Bob Wilson was married to the late Tom Wilson's sister June.

Yes they are the same firm.
If you Google `bob wilson fun fair` it takes you to a current travelling fair,
 quite large,  that seem to be based in birmingham....

Has anybody got any photos of Bob Wilson's Fun Fair when they used to visit Leysdown in the summer in the 1970's ?

Thanks in advance.
