Somerset FB Bedford TK 70' HP - Bridgwater

Not a great picture from the mid 70's of Somerset FB's 70' BEDFORD TK Hydraulic Platform "DYB 107C", but worth showing for historical context. New to the 'brigade in 1965, this appliance spent it's entire career at Bridgwater until replaced with a second-hand machine ex.Lancs FB in the early 80's. Shown here at Minehead Fire Station on a training exercise for local retained crews. A bit of a "ringer" for the Corgi model which is still to be seen at 'Fairs for collectors.

I believe very few "full size" snorkels were built with a mid-mounted pump like this, although the ill-fated 50 foot PHPs of course had regular rear mounted pumps.
