Papplewick 2014 photos

Papplewick - Simon Bailey (3)We took a small crew and the Turntable Ladder, and the K2 and a pump. The TL was demonstrated, but without water, as it was a bit breezy on Saturday. On Sunday, the wind got up and we were not able to do anything with the TL. We also had the mobile canteen, which was very well received.

However, on both days, we ran the pump with a variety of different branch and nozzle combinations. A popular one was with a 1-inch nozzle, with the branch supported by our new branch-holder, which we acquired just a couple of weeks earlier.

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.
