GLC-LFB - Foam Tender at Eltham Featured May Print

GLC-LFB - Foam Tender at Eltham

The GLC-LFB was created on 1 April 1965. A series of photos was commissioned of each type of fire engine, either within or absorbed into the enlarged London Fire Brigade. A mechanical bulk foam tender from Eltham fire station (E30) is seen here at a fire station. This Bedford fire engine with its bulk foam, own fire pump and foam generator came originally from the Middlesex fire brigade, whose stations were all absorbed into the London Fire Brigade in 1965

GLC-LFB - Dual purpose water-tender fire engine

The GLC-LFB was created on 1 April 1965. A series of photos was commissioned of each type of fire engine, either within or absorbed into the enlarged London Fire Brigade. The Dennis fire engine seen here came into London from the Surrey Fire Brigade, Surrey's fire engines did not carry the 50 foot wheeled escape ladder, but a 45 foot extension ladder (as shown). These fire engines were converted to carry wheeled escapes until the escape ladders were decommissioned in the mid-1980s. 13.5 metre (45 foot) extension ladders were reintroduced across the Brigade
