The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Dennis F8 - Western Area Fire Brigade
When John Walker of New Zealand posted a picture of their unique (well almost unique as they have 3 of them!) Dennis Dart pump, Pavel asked if he was laying down a challenge to the UK Dennis enthusiasts.
Well in response I have attached a picture of one of the finest, if not the finest F8 in the UK. This machine was based on the North West coast of Scotland at Greenock, on the mouth of the River Clyde. It has been restored by a very active restoration group lead by Bob Wright.
