Tyne and Wear??

Not Tyne and Wear, it is Cardiff City.

Cardiff. But why were the Gipsy and Anglia odd colours?

Added by Rob Johnson on 12 February 2013.
The Austin Gypsy was bought by Glamorgan Fire Service in 1962 and it passed to Cardiff in 1967 with the Whitchurch station. A number of brigades painted their auxiliary vehicles dark green at this time.
The Ford Anglia is probably an officer's car (the one on the roof wearing the soft cap!) and so could be any colour, not neccessarily red.
