Thanks for sending the pictures in from Das Island Graeme, its been a pleasure seeing some real classic old Dennis appliances.
I think this photograph of the combination emergency tender is really brilliant, they all look so new having been treated so well....Thanks.

Unique cab design it seems like they convert the second crew door into compartment to store equipment. Also note the driver drives at the left side, rare to see Dennis in left hand drive.

Graham - is the fire brigade on DAS still operated by BP, or is there municipal input now ?

Ian, the Fire Service is operated on behalf of the share holding companies, under ADMA OPCO. (BP, ADNOC, TOTAL & JODCO)
