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

New Zealand Dennis AFK169
This 1991 John Dennis built DS155 originally served Devon Fire & Rescue at Yelverton. It was imported into NZ and represented the first of a number of used UK appliances to arrive in the country. It originally served the New Brighton volunteer brigade and has subsequently been allocated to a large number of Canterbury brigades. It was due for decommissioning and disposal to a museum but it has another lease of life now as a relief pump currently based with the Rolleston volunteer brigade.
