The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Is this an Alfred Miles or Angus body?

Added by Rob Johnson on 10 March 2019.
Neither - it's A Carmichael Body on a Karrier Gamecock Chassis. It looks very different now! The rear ladder was added in the 1990's and has now been removed along with the rear step.

Thanks Michael.

I like the fact that they maximized rear access. It is a lot safer to unpack items from the rear than from the sides, particularly in close quarters and/or in traffic.

A lot of US and Australian fire equipment are designed along these lines, and of course quite a lot of European and all Japanese pumps hang their hoses in carts mounted at the rear...
