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.

Dial Holmes crane in use. Marshalls of Cambridge airport also built New Dimension fire vehicles.
I imagine it was purchased for use on the new M5 motorway in Gloucs. There is a fine film of this appliance in action in 1967 in the drill yard on You Tube. Title"Modern Rescue Appliance Demonstration".
Late Alastair Collins collection - used with permission.
