LFB Command units Mercedes H865XYF

London Fire Brigade F21 Stratford HDC with Command Unit pod and Mercedes-Benz 917AF Locomotors Command Support Unit (CSU5) H865XYF. These where origanly going to be Light Rescue Units but were converted into the CSU role instead,they only had a short life in London, and disapeared! However I know of at least one that reverted to the LRU role in Offaly County Republic of Ireland

H862 XYF was sold to Clare County Fire and Rescue Service, registered 91CE3630 and was sold to Dublin Civil Defence where it is still in Service.
H863 XYF was sold to Tipperary North Fire Service and is still in service.
H865 XYF was sold to Offaly Fire Service registered as 91OY1841 and is still in service.
The last one which I presume was H864 XYF was sold to Limerick county fire Service but was involved in a road traffic accident and is now out of service.

Thanks, I have a pic of the Offaly Fire Service one, it can now go with all the pics I have of it when it was at F20 Stratford Eastern Command. Just leaves H861XYF and H866XYF unaccounted for.

Forgot about those!
H861 XYF is now 91 WW 3553 purchased by Wicklow fire Service, and I believe is still on the run.
H866 XYF is now 91 MH 4536 purchased by Meath Fire service, I dont think it is still on the run, but it is still listed on its fleet.
Have a look at, all appliances are listed with current photos of most of them.
