Artist's Description

1940 Bedford pump /escape engine in the colours of the Scottish, North Eastern Fire Brigade.
I suspect this lovely old lady started life as a WW2 , blitz engine, in a major city somewhere in the UK. Probably finished in drab grey or some such non – descript camoflage colour. Certainly in 1940 the Royal Burgh of Inverurie didn’t have a vehicle of this type , having to rely on the council lorrys to tow a pump to the scene of any fire. However she is listed as having been allocated to the North Eastern Fire Brigade sometime in the 1950’s. The North Eastern these days is now the Grampion Fire And Rescue Service. Anyway whatever her history and trauma she attended , this hero that played a part in rescuing many people is still going with the help of McGreevy Engineering in Northern Ireland. She is seen here at County Down Steam and Tractor Club rally at Greyabbey, Rosemount estate co Down , Ards Penninsula.
