EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures a moment of respite for firefighters during the intense and perilous efforts to extinguish a raging warehouse fire at St Katherine Dock in London, during the 1940s. The image showcases a diverse group of firefighters from the London Fire Brigade and the Auxiliary Fire Service, each taking a well-deserved tea break amidst the chaos of the scene. The London Fire Brigade firefighters are easily identified by their distinctive cork helmets, while their Auxiliary Fire Service counterparts wear tin hats and proudly display their AFS badges on their tunics. The camaraderie and shared experience of these brave men, who risked their lives to protect their community during World War II, is palpable as they enjoy a simple pleasure - a hot cup of tea. This poignant snapshot of wartime London offers a glimpse into the daily life of the firefighters during the 1940s, highlighting their unwavering dedication and resilience in the face of adversity.
