1st Sabre in presevation
This is my Dennis sabre, it used to serve with Warwickshire FRS.
I have refurbished it myself including the spray job and stripes all cut by hand. I decided to paint it the same as the one South Yorkshire FRS had on trial from Dennis's, personally I think this was the best ever paint design on a sabre, and it was a one off. It used to be at a station where a family member worked so getting pics of it was never a problem.
