Gipsy Fire Trucks
Jim Fraser pictured in the far left
This picture was taken after the massive east works fire in 1964, the fireman on the left side is Leading Fireman Joe Boden.
This photo was sent to me by Eira Woodward, she wrote: " My husband Brian Woodward was an industrial fireman first at Morris Motors and then a subsiduary company Unipart. He absolutely adored his job and his Austin Gipsy fire tender in particular. He and his colleagues called it Noah for some reason!!!"
"the picture is from the retirement of my husbands boss - I
think probably mid 1970s. My husband is the cheeky one with the
beard 2nd on the left!"
Eira's husband has now passed and she is interested in what has become of this Fire Engine, if you have any information you can contact her via email firstname.lastname@example.org
