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

1979 CACFOA conference exhibition. EPL set up as rivals to Simon Snorkel but did not last long. This scissors set was sold to BP Oil to tackle high level fires in their tank farms. It was fitted with a Chubb Slimjet monitor. White Stonefield in background elsewhere on this site.
