Bedford/HCB Angus WrT. North Yorkshire Fire Brigade. This is one of my archive photos taken in the early 1980’s at Summerbridge Training School. I believe this appliance was originally fitted with a 50ft wheeled escape ladder, but I could be wrong!

Grand picture Graham, you are right about the escape, spoiled her looks when it was replaced, but a lovely machine none the less.

Those headlamps look unusual, are they a later addition?

Added by John D on 21 June 2009.
The headlamps are standard fittings on the Bedford KM series cab/chassis which I believe was used for this appliance.

John, I remember this as always having the twins when at the school.

Gents, I think this was inherited from the North Riding fleet in 1974 on local Government boundary changes and it had a 50 foot wheeled escape.

Paul, I dont have records for North Riding Bedfords but I think she was at Harrogate for a few years.

Gents, I have this machine documented at Thirsk along with her sister PAJ 41G?
