One of Whitby's three appliances in 1959 was also a Land Rover with the same type of Dennis trailer pump. The others were a Fordson 7V pump escape with a front mounted Barton American pump and one of the three Plaxton bodied Commer water tenders, a B type.

I should add that the Land Rover was a 108" wheel base hardtop stuffed with fire beaters and the like, rather than a small water tank and hosereel like this example. It did not carry any ladders either, as it was obviously intended for deployment at moorland fires - long before the Whitby station had a 4X4 Bedford TK water tender in later years.
