I remember this happening Lyndon although I was only young. I recall some of the older children & teenagers climbing into the field and finding coins that had obviously been in the conductors money bag. It was a right treasure hunt LOL!
I remember this well Lyndon even though I was only seven at the time. The site of the bus upside down was a pretty frightening thing for a youngster and I can remember feeling terrified each time I went down 'the brew' on a bus for a long time afterwards
i remember elsie sherrat from coronation street was on that bus,she was hurt but recovered okay
Marjorie, Elsie Sherrat was hurt. She was sat on one of the front seats and broke her pelvis. Incidentally did you live in Poplar Avenue, near the entry to the playing field. My mother used to go to a Mrs.Brogan for her hair styled and I'm sure she had a daughter Marjorie.
Sorry to butt in here but the Brogan you are thinking of Lyndon is Eileen, Margery live across from us in Hawthorn Ave.
Sorry I misspelt your name Marjorie.
Sue, thanks for the help. I remember now it was Eileen Brogan in Poplar Avenue. She went to Our Ladies School in Downall Green Road.
I remember the crash very well. My older sister Pat and my grandma were on the bus (Pat would have been about 20/21 at the time - she was born in 1939). Luckily neither of them were seriously hurt.
yes i'm no relation to eileen.i lived in hawthorne ave.opposite susan.you lyndon was a year below us i think.i was in rita cunliffes year.
Marjorie, I may have these names wrong but I think I remember you now with Pat Roberts from Poplar, Pam Wilde and Christine Adamson. Christine was the cousin of Helen and Sandra Adamson from Cedar Grove.
we had one thing in common lyndon.red hair
my mother in law was on the bus her name was patricia frodsham of downall green road
I was on the bus with my grandmother, Martha Adamson. We were bruised but not badly hurt. I remember turning over and over and being showered by the coins from the conductress's bag.
