Former Dumfries and Galloway Fire Brigade Ford A series together with its replacements. The Volvo appliance had just been put on the run when this photo was taken.

I know which one i'd want to be in going to a shout and it's not the Volvo or Renault ....

Having driven and been OIC of all three I can assure you the Volvo is the only one you'd want to be on

Forgive my friend John, he's like me, we have a strange aversion to anything other than Bedfords, Dennis and SOME Fords. Maybe its because we are Tykes? lol!

Yep - I was standing next to Paul taking the same shot! WSM815V was "our" Ford ET......was like going backwards to a job, kids used to pass us on bikes....VERY embarassing. 536 retired with 21K on the clock, ours had about 90K and was truly knackered.

WSM 815V ended up on Tyneside and was for sale but I don't know what happened to it. Never seen it at any local shows.
