When Men Wore Hats. District Nurses Rode Bicycles. Roads Were Devoid Of Yellow Lines. And People Said "Good-Morning" To Fellow Passengers On The Local Bus.

Happy Days.

Happy Days, again.

  1. I've missed some good posts here, sorry. The Stained glass windows, sewing lesson and buses are really interesting.

    The Maidstone & District buses dominated my young life - it took one over 2.5 hours to drive the 50+ miles from Sheerness to Victotia.

  2. Hi, John. Good to hear from you. Maidstone and District, eh ? I've travelled on their Charabancs a few times !!! I have previously attended Mass at Saint Henry and Saint Elizabeth, Sheerness, as well. Didn't see you, though. Plus, did you ever visit Butterworth, Malaya ?

  3. We were married there, and I went to the school of the same name (changed now). Left Sheerness in 1959!

    No I never made Butterworth, but I had two pals (Victor Tuan and Said Mustaffa) who flew out of there with the Malaysian Air Force
