My father was responsible for the conversion of GMV 999V whilst working for Pilcher Green. If anyone knows where this vehicle is now I would love to know. The last time I saw it was at Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show in July 2005 or 2006

I owned this and sold it to a collector in Holland in about 2007/08.Nikki you would have seen it at Ardingly when I showed it there.
Alas as for its present state/ownership I cannot say.

I photographed GWV 999V at the 2000 Odiham Fire Show but it's not been taxed since April 2005 so I've no idea if it still survives. Anyone know?
Nikki - I have been trying to do some research into Pilcher-Greene but I am not getting very far. Do you know if anyone has any records detailing the fire appliances built by the company?
