I spent some time working on the buses with the great British public, and life on the buses certainly had it’s moments, and in the early years it didn’t seem like work, it was just one long party,
Life takes it’s toll on all of us and i’ve got a lot less hair now.
I really looked forward to going to work, but sadly, time catches up with us all, so I reckon it’s only right that I dedicate this page to the wonderful lads and lasses that I had the privilege
of working laughing and loving alongside in those happy and now far off distant days…
Cheers to all of you on Black and White at Cheltenham, especially my good mate Rikki Jones from South Wales who I never saw from that date (Season of 1971) to this.
Also to Halifax.C.P.T. (Winter seasons) 1968/69/70/71/ through to 1976, to Yelloways Rochdale 1972 to 1974 (summer seasons) in and amongst, and to all the great lads and lasses on Yorkshire Rider, last good times in my opinion before First Group took over the running’s, enough said there then!.
This page is all about the memories that were made in a time that we will never relive, but this is where to come to drift down that old lane once more, just for a few brief moments.

Looking back in time, when the job was a joy and workmates became friends for life…
