I am delighted to add this additional picture of WTE892, again with thanks to Mr. A. Collier.

It was originally believed that this appliance was allocated to Lytham Fire Station.
However, official records show it was at Fleetwood and subsequently at Leyland.

Bedford TK JTE343B had probably joined the reserve fleet when seen here in Heysham.

Sister appliance LHG319N had moved to Skelmersdale when this picture was taken.
It was probably the only Lancashire ERF to work 'deep' in GMC territory.
I remember seeing it at a 30 pump incident in Farnworth near Bolton, 29 September 1979.
