Sheffield County Borough WrE. Rear pump with either side deliveries gave easier access to the pump for maintenance, still allowing for the escape, if needed later on at an incident, to be slipped whilst the pump was in action. Sheffield's earlier AEC/Merryweather appliances had midships pumps, restricting space for lockers. Had an excellent visit to Sheffield in 1973!
