Cor blimey, they've even pinched the wheels off the escape. Proberly got through the blitz OK with only a scratch, and now look at her.

Is that the 60ft TL they're selling behind the Heavy Unit? Or is it one that someone will have half a chance of saving?

The TL is a Leyland TD7 'half cab' 100' TL - ex South Shields as far as I am aware it was available for disposal - the 60' TL has been sold I think

The green K4 is an Escape carrying unit with a Barton pump post war PE(Light). The TL behind is a 100ft wartime??

Great intentions gone sour. I noticed that the ex Leicester City AEC 2GM4R Mercury/Merryweather ET/CU HBC945D is up for sale in Classic Commercials.
