Q 329 NPP - Landrover - Rear view

Having put the front view of this great little appliance onto the site, I thought that the rear view might be of interest, as well. Also taken at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcs. on Sunday 30th. June 1996. People that know far more about it than I do have said that it is ex. UK forces. Does anyone know of it's present whereabouts? The makers plate visible in this view, above the rear number plate, confirms HCB-Angus of Southampton as the builder.

Thanks for this view Dave, I know of a few but I only keep Goddess records. The lovely thing about this machine was its simplicity, narrow enough to pump from open water and carried a fair amount of kit. Its other attraction was its offroad ability, having used one for four years and with snow chains when needed, its brilliant. A very underated design and not many outside military service. Hertfordshire ran one in the seventies, I believe this transferred to Leavsden Hospital and was used up until around 1992 by the volunteer brigade there.

John - I too never understood why more of these were not used by UK fire brigades.

I suspect the reason was that these did not meet all the specification criteria for a JCDD approved fire pump...

There were also a few examples, which seem to have been over-built with wider bodies and rollover problems, and of course there was always the temptation to load too much on to them - the payload was not all that high!
