A very worthwhile picture Ian. A rear view is so valuable when looking at an unusual appliance such as this and yours is the first one I have seen.
Much appreciated.

Thanks also, Ian; the Rear View tells so much, particularly in this unique rig. I had thought the Ladder was stowed flat.....

Anders:

It was originally built as an open cab truck, to achieve the required low height.

The plastic bubble top was added later on because of pressure from the Fire Brigade Union, as the firefighters did not like riding around in the cold and wet weather so typical of Northeastern England!

For better or worse, the FBU used to be very powerful, so the city had little choice.

Hi all just an update on the Dennis it is now at the North East Land Sea and AirMuseum at the Old RAF/Sunderland airport site next to the Nissan motors factory worth a visit if you are in the north east of England.
