Following helpful feedback [no pun intended], I have decided to group all the Salvation Army Catering Units together on one page. The vehicles can all work anywhere in the North West Area that the Salvation Army currently covers and are not restricted to any particular Fire & Rescue Service.
The Cheshire FRS SACU is Mercedes PN63PDO
and was seen at its base, 2 July 2019.
This vehicle is currently based at Lymm Fire Station, callsign E28S4.
The GMCFRS SACU was built on an Iveco Chassis,
PO13FLL. It was seen arriving at an incident near Rochdale, 16 February

The latest SACU for Lancashire FRS is Mercedes
PE63TZX and was seen at an incident in Longridge, 7 November 2023.
This vehicle is normally based at SHQ with callsign L52S4.
The SACU for Merseyside CK06XPO was seen at
a large fire in Earlestown, 20 May 2020.

For the first time in the summer, we had all
3 'white' vans together at Greater Manchester FRS Training Centre in Bury,11
We used it as a Training Exercise for volunteers with the idea of seeing how quickly we could feed a large contingent of firefighters.
L to R - PN63PDO from Cheshire served the vegetarian option.
PO13FLL from Greater manchester served other foods.
PE63TZX from Lancashire served drinks.
