A celebration is being held today to mark Walthamstow's role in the development of London buses. 

The Year of the Bus event at Walthamstow Town Square, to be held between 11am and 3pm, will display Boris Johnson's new Routemaster, a 1940s AEC RT Type Bus, a 1950s AEC Routemaster and a 1922 AEC S Type, Walthamstow-built bus.    

This year sees a number of bus-related anniversaries, including the centenary of the B-Type 'Battle Bus', which was developed at Hookers Road, off Blackhorse Lane, in Walthamstow. 

The famous bus was adapted as a troop carrier during the First World War and 1,300 were acquired by the then War Department and used in France to carry soldiers to the frontline.    

Today's display has been organised by Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum and the Metropolitan Police. 

Visitors will be able to look inside the buses, find out about their history and that of the fire service and Metropolitan Police as well as see a performance by the Force's Police Band.

Further, it is a shame that the pump house do not get some of the old rust buckets a bit ship shape and restore some to their former glory.

There are some nice examples now and it will be a bit of an embarrassment once the Wetlands Project opens up there. People will come from miles away and the old forgotten treasures will be a bit of an eyesore. It just needs a bit of elbow grease, sandpaper, p38, paint and determination, effort and foresight. Come on chaps let's get them ready?

Well Mr Cranberry I'm sure they will appreciate your offer of help, all that knowledge you have.

Oh I see, you want someone else to do all the work for your pleasure. Must be lovely being your wife . . .

No, I am willing, every time I have been there it is closed. Like the

So you've called them then?

I don't usually take troll bait but when it's aimed at hard working volunteers I can't resist. I really should know you because apparently you're in all the places I go but at least I know I'll see you as a volunteer at the Pump House, should make you easier to spot.

Unless of course you're full of crop. Likely I think.

I have hardly seen any requests for volunteers unlike places like the Copped Hall or Epping Forest Organisations. I remember over the years after it was set up at the Pump House them going around putting leaflets on privately owned classic cars as they put one on my old Morris Oxford that I had. I went there and it was closed. They just seem to store people's privately owned stuff which is cheap garaging for owners but they all just seem rust buckets and deteriorate. I urge those in control to take stock and preserve these vehicles. Yes, I will roll up my sleeves an knuckle down to some hard work. A concerted effort is required here.

Well, Villagecranberry, by coming up with these falsehoods you've given away your true identity as Cornbeefur! You been informed several times in the past that the Pumphouse Museum is open at specific times but you've never turned up (why am I NOT surprised?). Now the museum is closed to the public for internal works but you COULD try coming down on a Tuesday morning , a Thursday or a Sunday to 'roll up your sleeves and knuckle down to some hard work' but none of us involved with the Pumphouse are going to hold our breath! What a plonker you are Cornbeefur!!

These old buses bring back fond memories of some of my favourite films "Mutiny on the buses" and "Holiday on the buses". Hopefully when the brand new Empire cinema being built on the arcade site opens they will show them as a part of a special season, afterwards, I'll pop next door to the "Moon under the Granada" Wetherspoons pub which I've heard is going to replace the old cinema for a drink. I hate you Butttllleerrrrrr

With attitudes like this I am not surprised you are short of volunteers and that the treasures you store are rotting rust buckets.
