Red/White Beacons on U.K. Appliances
There has been a recent discussion here on the use of multi-colour beacons on U.K. appliances. In this picture we see the Dennis Dominator Incident Command Unit with 3 conventional rotating mirror blue beacons and in the centre a rotating white red beacon. The beacon is divided into quadrants resulting in two white flashes and two red flashes per revolution. Rotation speed is slow compared with the blue beacons, perhaps 1 revolution every 3 seconds.
