Great picture Marcel, love the round corners and edges. Nice to see doors on the lockers in stead of roller shutters.

Marcel, this is a great photo, I have always been a fan of Commer trucks, there is something business-like about their cabs, I have a Dinky Toy fire engine with extending ladder that has identical cab, ,

Marcle, could you please confirm or otherwise if this fire truck is now preserved in the Netherlands

The Dinky is actually a model of a Carmichael Commer water tender, which was supplied to York City Fire Brigade.

There are photos of it from both the front and rear on this site. You will notice the front cab doors are front hinged, and that the lockers, hose reels, Dennis pump and suction hose storage are all faithfully replicated on the model.
