You have some excellent pictures Martin, especially of this vehicle. I dont suppose you have a rear view of it, or details of its disposal and ultimate fate do you?

Hi Chris,
Sorry, I know nothing about it. I was a student in Hull 1980 1983 but did not get a decent camera until 1983 and even then I couldn't afford much film at the time. I took these photos on a return visit to Hull in 1984. I was taking photos from the gate when one of the firement invited me into the yard and so I was able to photograph them close up but have lived in the north east ever since and know very little about them. The first fire engine I ever photographed was Preston's Ford when I lived in Hedon as a child...I took it from a window in the is a spec in the distance!!!

From acorn grow might oaks Martin. Wonderful photograph in particular the Kingston-upon-Hull ones. 4919 RH was my favourite one of the brigade although I never got over to Humberside until I was 25, 1995.

Hi Martin, thanks for your great photo indeed. I saw this fire engine in the 1970s when I was a kid in Hong Kong. Those days all fire engines in Hong Kong were deployed from the U.K. Chris Chui, Hong Kong.
