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.

This was owned by my dad and I for a while, bought at auction once it was disposed of by Durham County. In some ways I wish we still had it, the six cylinder Rolls Royce just used to run like a sewing machine.

This is now residing in a field just outside Wimborne Minster and is owned by a local businessman.
