GLC-LFB - Foam Tender at East Ham Featured 31 May 1965 Print

GLC-LFB - Foam Tender at East Ham

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 East Ham fire station (L21) is seen here at a fire station. The Bedford lorry with a foam tank on the back had its own fire pump and foam generator. Originally this fire engine was stationed in the West Ham fire brigade, whose stations were 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
