LFB Dennis 106 Pump
London Fire Brigade Dennis F106 Pump JYE308D (P308C), seen as H33 Beckenham's Pump, (it was a Divisional spare) outside H21 Bromley on 27/01/1980. This appliance was new (in 1966) to E27 Erith and ran as their Pump Ladder, (with a Merryweather 50ft Ladder), up to either 1969 or early 1970. All the ex Kent Fire Brigade Stations taken over by the GLC in 1965 had Pump Ladders. Sorry about the quality of the pic I took it with a poloroid camara!
