E76/C37/E37 RADCLIFFE/WHITEFIELD

I am grateful for the information that this appliance is not in fact the FK6.
Further research suggests it might be Leyland F7T1 ETJ600 formerly at Farnworth.
It was seen in the yard at Radcliffe Fire Station in the early 1950s.

Always my favourites, as they were the first appliances I remember,
I am very grateful for this first colour picture of a Commer HY 349KTF fitted with additional spotlights,
and dating back to Lancashire County days.
