Wartime Dennis Trailer Pump 1941
This Dennis trailer pump was supplied by the Home Office to the Ferranti factory in Oldham in 1941. It’s now on display at the Imperial War Museum North at Salford Quays in Greater Manchester. The information board said six people operated it and it delivered 500 gallons per minute.
