Rufford, Sept 2011

At this event, we did a major display in the main arena, involving all three vehicles, and our friends from the Heritage Ambulance Association with their K2 Ambulance.

The scenario was that an ARP warden and Fire Guard were tackling an incendiary bomb, and unfortunately it was the one in ten that exploded! The Fire Guard is injured, and a messenger sends for the NFS and Ambulance service.

The casualty is assisted into the ambulance, and the NFS tackle the fire, which gets so out-of-hand that the Turntable Ladder is brought in, as well as men on branches.

Many thanks to Tim Rogers for the excellent photos.

I currently run a group that displays wartime and early post-war fire engines at 1940s re-enacting events and steam engine rallies. O yes, and vintage cars and motorbikes, and we live in a Victorian railway station.
