Reserve Pump - Dennis rear view.
With high power pump.

If my memory is right the name "reserve pump" does not mean this engine is old or on the side. These appliances were used during big fires when big water supplies were needed.

If anybody can comment, Thanks

The "Reserve Heavy Pump"-RHP is a unique and special appliance used by HKFSD at the time. Posiblly the only Dennis build with an heavy duty pump and large sized deck turret (Only HKFSD own such thing in the world). This appliance will be called out during major fire and water is pumped through the pump and turret to provide water shooting to high rise building or areas where water supply are needed.

Now the old Dennis RHP is replaced with the RHP built on Scania chassis. For more info of the new appliance just view:

The heavy pump is powered by a Rolls-Royce engine.

Probably the term 'Reserve' in the instance of these machines is to denote that they are 'Reserved for major incidents' and are not first turn-oyr appliances.

The Rolls pumps were transferred from AEC chassis onto the Dennis.
