Photo would have been taken at Bohemia Rd , Hastings as The Ridge fire station wasn't built until 1977.
This ran as a Pump Emergency Salvage Tender, PEST as it was referred to by the station personnel at the time . It was mainly used as an emergency tender but could be pressed into operation as a pump as it had a small water tank, pump and hose reel. When taken over by ESFB it reverted back to just the role of emergency tender being replaced in 1984/5 by a 6 wheel jeep. This Bedford was then used as a driver trainer from Hove and the Jeep was written off in 1988.
