During the great drought of 1976 taken in the village of Cynwyd near Corwen N Wales during a large montain fire on Cynwyd mountain. The village was the rendevous point. This is Shroshire FS Water tender.

This appliance was a Brigade spare, however at the time of this incident it was on the run at Whitchurch due to our Commer water tender being in Workshops. I know this because I drove it to the incident!

Its sister appliance KUV247 ended up at the Decca factory Bridgnorth as an industrial appliance. I have a photo but it is so poor quality that I do not think the editor would accept it. The same factory had conventional Dennis F8 JFK670. Factory later taken over by Tatung.
