One of only three FGK 40 made to this design by HCB Angus in Totton Southampton, I believe it served the NAAS area of Ireland until Middle 1970s.

I remember photographing this lovely appliance at the Kilbeggan Rally in October 1990. According to Aidan Fisher's HCB-Angus lists, it was build number 1415 and was supplied to County Kildare in 1966.

I spoke to Aidan this morning and he told me that a few years ago during restoration, all the aluminium was stolen and the appliance was just a chassis-cab. That is a dreadful shame for such a lovely machine. I assume that it is no longer a fire appliance.
