If Ben went past the Jezerels on his way home from the Tech School he must have been on a no 8 bus and not on his usual 45. The No 8 went up Canterbury St to the Top Rd and then up the Rainham Maidstone Rd to Bredhurst past the Queens Head PH. The 45 went up Barnsole Rd to the Top Rd and then up Edwin Rd to Wigmore past the Smallholders Club and terminated at Fairview Ave jct Bredhurst Rd. If for some reason I missed the 45 at LivingstoneCircus I would have to dash up to the bus depot to see if I could catch the no 8 otherwise I would have had a long wait and been in serious trouble once I got home!
