A question for all those knowledgeable about Leylands!

Does anyone know the history or have pictures of JRE114 a '38/'39 Leyland?

Answers do not have to be on a postcard...

Thanks,

Barry.

Barry(JRE 114),I can't tell you much about the appliance history,but the one you mentioned is a 1939 Leyland Cub FK8 and was issued to Tamworth Joint Fire Brigade in September of 1939.

Reverend K S Oliver,before any answers can be added to your request,we need to know what year and what actual model the appliance is.The first of the FKT and F5/F7 Series of Leyland Cub's first came around 1937,but several engines were used in the different models being introduced.
A very good sourse of information can actually be obtained from purchasing the book'Leyland Fire Engines'1930-1942.Its a Leyland Fleet Series book published by The Leyland Society.The cost of the book first published in 2003(still available)is just £8.95 and is available from any good bookshop.Ask for title-then ISBN 0-9545216-1-7.
I hope this info is of some help to you in the preservation of your Leyland Cub????.
