Funny old things to drive if they had the auto box.They would go into neutral if you took your foot of the gas and you would just hang on if you were going around a bend.This one spent its last day at Wadhurst and they blew the engine in flood water in 2000.

C946 SAP or Maybe of been (945) This applaince was later brought to Station 15 Wadhurst as the 2nd pump, as Whiskey 15. Served there for many years, until it was written-off by East Sussex after it took water in through the exhaust being driven through flood water in Tidebrook Wadhurst During the floods of 2000/01 I was not the driver at the time , as busy in another part of the county on the 1st pump
