Are you positive it's R H Blunt?  The Dover Express has a few references to tenders for H. E. Blunt of Sholden to haul coal, granite.... in the 1920's.  The initials H E stand for Herbert Edward and he was at Osborne House, Church Lane, Sholden in the 20's.

I am looking for information regarding R.H. Blunt Haulage contractors,
in Deal Kent in the 1920's. I believe my father drove a 'Garret Steam wagon for them.
