Herbert Hodge , well-known broadcasting taxi-driver, whose new book
'Cab, Sir? ' is being widely read, was associated with Unity in its early days. He was, in fact, one of the pioneers who, working under great difficulties with little money and in appalling conditions, laid the foundation of what has now become a thriving concern.
