I used to ride this appliance in the early seventies, and there are one or two things wrong with the restoration. It was bought by Sheffield Fire Brigade in 1971 and saw most of its service at Division Street working under the reformed South Yorkshire County Fire Service.

It looks as if it is carrying a 45 foot alloy ladder, but the rear bodywork suggests that its original role may have been to carry a wheeled 50 foot escape ladder.
