Taken 14-9-17 waiting for the move to Hampshire.
Yes I did blow up the tyres !
Seen in its maroon livery but I am told it should be red. Please excuse the layer of dust.
She starts and runs well.

Was this a pump, or did it tow a trailer pump?

It seems to my eyes to look more like an overgrown but very posh estate car than a fire engine, and must have had rather limited space for the crew, hoses and tools.

I like the livery: it reminds me of the prewar Newcastle engines, which was continued into the 1960s...

They somehow manged to look more expensive than their red counterparts!

Thanks to all for the info regarding its proper colour.

There is a rear mounted Dennis pump. There are side benches and a bench up the centre of the crew cab. The interior is completely enclosed because it was designed as a gas proof vehicle.

The bodywork was carried out by MARKHAMS of Reading/High Wycombe, I believe shes sitting on a 1927 chassis, i know it served in London, Plymouth and Coventry during the 2nd world war! not too shabby!.@tony foster I havent forgotton and am still working on a solution.Also not sure but I think I have the bell that goes on top..
