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
Fire Engine Photos
Rear view of Gloucestershire FS Commer WDG655
Photo was taken by Bristol Bob and is reproduced with his permission. Photo shows the Commer pump Escape which I believe at the time was stationed at Severnside which was part of Gloucestershire Fire Service until 1974 when the reorganisation meant the station passed to the newly formed County of Avon Fire Brigade. The first severn crossing can just be made out in the picture.
