Dennis D and DS ex Devon

Ex Devon 1979 D series. Originally at Exeter then Seaton.

This D series was the only one of it's type to have the more modern strobe type beacons fitted, but had them removed prior to disposal.

Mark, yet it appears they left the strobes on the DS, ,

Hi Pavel
I believe the strobes were required for new appliances at the time of disposing of the D series but not so at the time of disposing of the DS. Mark.

Hi,
Not meaning to be pedantic, but the appliance on the right (B876 TTA) isn't a DS. It's an RS135.

Not pedantic at all Ian. I realised my mistake after posting it. Thought I'd got away with it too.

Hi Mark, Do you still have the D? I'm a firefighter from Seaton and have been for 12yrs. I am looking to hire its use for our wedding, its beautiful and would love to get in touch if this is possible?!
Please email me.

Dennis D series LTT 209P also had strobes fitted to it. Appliance was based at Stn 44 Tiverton. I have the pictures. The strobes were fitted to overcome interference problems on the radio. SJY 845T also served at 44 alongside 209P, both replaced with RS's with conseq plates, A666 and A667 KFJ.

SJY845T I drove at Seaton, it replaced a split screen Bedford STA302H.
