Haflinger Appliance ex North Riding Fire Service

Photo taken 29th August 2013 at Sheffield Police and Fire Museum. Bodywork by A Schofield and Sons, Bury. Supplied to North Riding of Yorkshire Fire Service in 1969. It was based until 1981 at Sedburgh, which has subsequently become part of Cumbria.

A vehicle presumably selected for the rough terrain in that part of the country.

It was based at Settle at the beginning.

The photo makes it look really grown up but actually they were tiny (roughly 3 meters long and 1.35 meters wide). A Pinzgauer is HUGE compared with the Haflinger.

Supplied new to the West Riding of Yorkshire Fire Service.

Yes Dusty, you're right, it was West Riding, not North Riding.

I don't know how to change my picture heading.

Settle and Sedbergh were in the West Riding pre 1974, FF5 in NFS days.

The Haflinger was made by Steyr Daimler Puch of Austria who also produced later the Pinzgauer.
The Haflinger existed both in a military and in a civil version.

Thank you for that information, Anders. Were they built for fire-fighting or military duties?

I do believe this vehicle was supplied to the West Riding County Council Fire Brigade in unique white livery with the hammer finish rear panelling on the rear panels. During these years West Riding adopted a total white livery on their appliances after colour trials in the county proved (in their opinion) that white stood out in all light conditions over the original red livery.This appliance may have been delivered just before the counties standardisation on white commenced, not sure?
