Commer Magirus DL30H 1959 T.L.

Commer Magirus DL30H 1959 T.L. Original registration 5222 AC. Photograph taken in l984. Shipped to Perth, Australia, in 1974. Original equipment is in storage. It has not been in service for many years. The bodywork now needs renovation and the ladders need to be replaced. Does anybody know the whereabouts of a suitable ladder set?

This Commer 86A/Haydon-Magirus DL30H Turntable Ladder was ex-Warwick County Fire Brigade and served at Warwick Street, Leamington Spa until 1967, then Corporation Street, Rugby till 1972.

Geoff, I would imagine this TL never saw service with the Brigade in Perth but used by a private company as indicated on the signage?

I have just bought the last known surviving one of these appliances in the UK, 113 LKE ex Gravesend, Kent. Will post pics on here soon.

Hi, greetings from the uk. Can you tell me if this vehicle is still around as my dad was in Warwick county fire service and this was his engine. I have several photos of it in service and would love to know its whereabouts.
Thanks in anticipation, Kevin
