Camberley – hardly ideal bus-spotting territory?

Last month we grabbed a hasty photo of three fellows who were almost certainly bus spotting in Pembroke Broadway.  They seemed to be photographing virtually every bus.  The obvious question – why there?  Is there an equally obvious answer?


(We have to say that the Trueman’s bus/coach in our photograph looks very smart!)

      • Originally Jonathan Swift:-

        “The Siphonaptera” is a nursery rhyme, sometimes referred to as Fleas.

        Big fleas have little fleas,
        Upon their backs to bite ’em,
        And little fleas have lesser fleas,
        and so, ad infinitum.

        Sometimes a second verse appears, with lines such as

        And the great fleas, themselves, in turn
        Have greater fleas to go on;
        While these again have greater still,
        And greater still, and so on.

        The rhyme is seemingly related to lines by Jonathan Swift from his long satirical poem “On Poetry: a Rhapsody” (1733):

        The vermin only teaze and pinch
        Their foes superior by an inch.
        So, naturalists observe, a flea
        Has smaller fleas that on him prey;
        And these have smaller still to bite ’em,
        And so proceed ad infinitum.
