    I'm still a big kid when a double decker bus comes along and I have to sit at the front at the top to get a birds eye view over people's gardens

    We had two old buses at St Mags (you remember them Kev?) they used to belch out the most amazing smoke and I remember we sent one 1st year in to the garage to get a ball just as they were cranking up the engine. Poor sod came out black

    The one we used was called "Old Faithful" and would take hours and hours to get to Anglesea, good fun though.

    Old faithful - that's the one! A bluey green colour if I can remember. Always piloted by 'jock' Davidson, and we used to liken him to Mackay from Porridge!

    John 'Wilko' Wilkinson was the BEST teacher in St Mags. Always had time for you when you took an interest in CDT and his numerous Jags too.

    I remember once he built a go-kart and thrashed it around the large yard before being told off by one of the other teachers

    I had Wilko for CDT. Remember once he insisted that my own metal ruler was one of his! He took it and wouldn't give me it back. It was mine as well - my dad "borrowed" it from Fords for me I was still crap at CDT tho!
