Hi, am trying to get photograhs of fire engines that my late father used to drive while being a leading fireman for the Avon brigade. Is it at all possible to get a copy of this one. Thanks

Does anyone know who own this engine? I have the same model, I have the same model, possibly the prototype, trying to gather information to help with refurb. Thanks David Harris

David, it might be better off asking on the Facebook forums, they are far more active than this page. There groups I'd ask in are FSPG (fire service preservation group, UK Fire Brigade History and the HCB Angus group..
