Post war conversion of a standard WWII issue NFS Austin K3 Heavy Unit. I remember once seeing this unit still in service in Hungerford in 1968 - well over twenty years since it was first placed in service.

Various conversions were done, so there was no apparent standard. This one has had its 700 GPM pump and engine unit removed, and has had a water tank, PTO driven hose reel pump and reel added. I do not think it had a main pump, though.

The brigade have also added amber roof flashers and a bumper mounted Winkworth electric bell, similar to the ones used at the time by police forces and ambulances.

Because of weight and engine power limitations, these water tanks were usually around 200 gallons - so these did not qualify as type A water tenders but were considered to be hose reel tenders.
