Karrier Gamecock 72A Alfred Miles
This 1956 Alfred Miles bodied Karrier Gamecock 72A, was one of six delivered new to Northumbria fire service. Based at Bellingham,this one saw service till 1980. All six were supplied as Hose Tenders and all six were converted in 1970 to emergency tenders. This one has less than 12,000 miles on it and runs like a new one! sadly, only two seem to have survived. This one now lives with me in Suffolk.
