Hi Petros.
This is an F38. Reg Nos 413 and 415 were F36's.
Cheshire had two F36's which had longer wheelbases and were fitted with a B81 and a stick. (very fast!)
The 36's can be identified by the extra locker to the rear of the crew cab. Also in Cheshire they carried Merryweather 45ft ladders and were later converted to carry the 135 ladders. One originally based at Wilmslow (413) whilst 415 was based at Hyde and was subsequently inherited by the newly formed GMC Fire Service in April 1974.

Always a bit confused by Dennis ref numbers - I thought that the 36's had the 6 cylinder RR engine and the 38's the 8 cylinder motors , every day's a school day it seems... Thanks for the info Tony.
