The Dennis F8 belongs to the 1950s era at a time when the famous coachbuilder's vehicles dominated the fire emergency scene. Dennis has a history going back as far as the 1890s when the brothers started manufacturing bicycles. Today, it remains one of only a handful of manufacturers specialising in fire-fighting machinery.
This is registered 42 CMX and would have made a striking sight speeding through London, with its silver bodywork and red front, which also incorporates the Dennis name in silver/black on the radiator grille. Powered by a Rolls-Royce B60 six-cylinder engine, the rear mounted Dennis No. 2 pump could deliver 500 gallons of water per minute. The London Fire Brigade four-colour crest features on the side along with the Brigade lettering in gold. A useful addition is a spare set of extention ladders perched on the roof, capable of a 35 ft stretch, which would have been essential to reach the tall buildings in our capital city.
