West Sussex Dennis D VPO 699N at Worthing
1974 Dennis D VPO 699N running as the 2nd Whole time pump at Worthing in 1988 when part of the Reserve fleet. New to East Grinstead in September 1974 she also served as the 2nd pump at Petworth from 1983 to 1987 before joining the Reserve fleet. West Sussex had 20 Dennis Ds, the 1974 N reg batch of 4 being the first to have slightly higher bodywork to allow the hard suction hose to be stowed centrally under the middle locker, rather than high up on top of the body - early attention to manual handling! Alongside is Worthings Range Rover Carmichael RT MBP 550P in original day glo orange livery. Ford BACV CPO 635L just visible in rear drill yard. Worthing was allocated identical Dennis D GBP 998N as 2nd WTL from 1974 to 1976 and 3rd WTL between 1976 & 1979.
