The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Harmondsworth Merryweather Manual Pump
2016. This pump is the same one shown in pictures, 40245, 40247 and 40248. This picture was given to me by the owner after i had restored the fire engine for him around twenty years ago. He lived in Harmondsworth, Middlesex and his great grandfather was Sam Bateman standing second from right.
