I am 63 years old and proud to share that my paternal grandad "pop" drove a General bus through the blitz and I have been told that whichever shift he had finished at Willesden Garage, the family cat would meet him at the bottom of the road. Uncle Stan and Auntie Betty were conductors and Uncle Jack was a driver for London Transport. Thats my "heritage" of which I am very proud. Enjoy the parade - I know I will.

Have to book for Tatty Devine and pay £35
