Knights of the Road!


When you travel up and down the motorways you begin to notice transport companies simply by the frequency that you pass one of their trucks. The boredom of distance leads to the names taking on a familiarity: Turners of Soham, Norbert Dentressangle, Prestons of Potto and the daddy of them all: Eddie Stobbart. However I have a favourite…

Some firms choose Eddie Stobart
Some on Dentressangle are sold
But if I had some stuff to shift
I’d choose Knights of Old!

I don’t know if they’re better
I don’t know if they’re true
But they promise ‘Service With Honour’
I think for me that would do!

I see them on the motorway
I see them by the river
Knights of Old are on the road
Jousting to deliver!
