Air Raid at Kelham Island, Sheffield, this weekend

We are planning to take the Turntable Ladder (which is currently round the corner at the National Emergency Services Museum) and a trailer pump to Kelham Island Industrial Museum for their 1940s event this weekend (12/13th July).

A lone bomber drops some bombs on the factory just across the water from the museum, and the NFS respond by setting a pump into the river, and pumping water to a ground monitor, or the ladder monitor, onto the burning building opposite.

If available to take part, please contact David Moore ASAP, by phone or email to

I am a director of a small (and very technical) business, a committed Christian, a Reader (and preacher) in my local village church, husband to my dear Frances, am interested in heritage railways, and heritage fire engines. 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.
