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.

These were also built with a mid mount 850 gpm pump. An example which was supplied to Newcastle and Gateshead can be viewed on this site.

The mid mounted pump - very popular on the Dennis F12 dual purpose appliance too - had the advantage that the main pump could be much more easily operated while keeping the wheeled escape ladder in place. Many cities - notably London - bought mid mounts almost exclusively.

Newcastle & Gateshead Joint Fire Service never had any of those with midship pumps. The Newcastle midship pump ones were AEC Mercury's.
