Wonderful shot Peter. Those were the days before the inequitous Local Government act whitepaper of 1972 took effect. The Gaiety Theatre was where the HP used to stand on Ben Fund duties. The Commer ET CDM563C could be found by the Town Hall on Water Street, Whole-time Pump LJC490R was in High Street and Retained pump ODM446L was in Queen Street.

oops the ET reg should be CDM593C. The old grey matter playing up there. I last saw the ET around 1979 in a scrap yard on the Colomendy in Denbigh.
