Mr. A. H. Bush was granted and extension to his licence on Friday 31st May 1929 on the forthcoming occasion of a visit from the Yarmouth Master Butchers.

At the Licensing Sessions Friday 8th February 1946 Mr. Bush applied for the usual Market day extensions from 2 pm to 6pm and a Summer-time extension to 10:30 pm from 1st June to 30th September. The decision was adjourned for one month.
Mr. Bush then thanked Superintendant for the excellent co-operation the Harleston licensees had received from the police. The Superintendant in turn thanked Mr. Bush for the compliment made to the police.
An objection to the licence of Mr. Bush was then raised by a representative of Messrs. Boyce, Evans and Shepherd of London. Certain documents were presented to the Bench and they were considered in private.
The Chairman then said that the documents presented offered no reason to deny the licence and since there were no witnesses or other evidence the licence would be granted.
