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

DBR 947S Ex Durham Dennis
Based in Bishop Auckland and peterlee to the best of my knowledge, pumps and tanks were removed and it was used as a foam tender carrying all foaming equipment. Bought by me in 2008, sold it to a guy in Scotland who said he had a private museum but i saw it on ebay a few months later so location unknown! It was in lovely condition though.
