The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

1970s With an 8 cylinder Rolls Royce petrol engine. New to West Riding Fire Brigade. They had a number of appliances painted white before going back to red. I think this appliance passed over to North Yorkshire on Local Government boundaries change. Was bought for restoration about 10 years ago. Picture elsewhere on this site.
