News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Going back over the years, we lads in 1935, who lived at the top of Castle Road, used to wait for the Chatham & District bus to come up Castle Road. This, it appeared, was a test area, for a mechanic to test the engine & brakes. The bus duly arrived chugging up the hill, there were about six of us ready to grab the handrail & jump on, for a ride. The mechanic knew this, and as the bus reached Magpie Hall Road, he geared up to a higher speed, and sometimes, we were unable to get off. If this happened we would have to walk back from Huntsman Corner, a half a mile away. This was about 11.am.on school holidays..

I have noticed the cream and brown double decker bus is back in Chatham bus station but without, on the side,  `Chatham Traction `.  Waiting for another ` transfer ` to put on ?
