Transport to game.
Rose gave me a welcome lift to B.T.M. for 7.30. The group gathered as usual in the bar on platform 3 and waited for the departure platform to be confirmed. The initial band included Andy, Ron, Bob and Phil. Martin joined us on the train. Peter and Geoff were going by Megabus and we would meet them later. The train left at 8.20, the earlier than usual time explained by the route of the train being indirect, i.e. via Bath, Warminster, Westbury and then back to the main line at Reading. By luck of the ticket booking my neighbour was Martin. The others were split apart and conversation therefore became difficult. Martin was in full chewing gum mode so I instantly went into ear protection function. I had my phone and my you tube play list to keep my sanity.
