What a super collection of photographs. I never knew East Kent in its BET days but this gallery shows just how individualistic the BET Group Companies were in vehicle purchasing policy.

Lovely pictures Roy depicting a fascinating and proud Company serving a lovely coastal area of "The Garden of England" as the county is often known. East Kent had a classic simple but rich and dignified livery and fleetnames of an appeal which is sadly lacking in today's "marketing consultant" led times. If I recall, wasn't East Kent one of those companies who delighted me with an unexpected treat - prewar Leyland TD4s/TD5s rebodied postwar by ECW - a classic combination which looked right in every detail. The East Yorkshire "Beverly Bar" examples were just too good to be true - Utopia.
Still in Kent, neighbouring Maidstone and District had a totally different character but were equally delightful in dignity and excellence.
