London Fire Brigade(1960's)on exercise.
This picture shows the London Fire Brigade in attendance at a major exercise with their appliances in the City of London around about 1960.The appliances in attendance are 2 1950's AEC/Merryweather pumps,and a 1930's Leyland/Metz TL.These models are from the Oxford Diecast range of emergency vehicles in 1.76 scale.
The diarama shows civilian figures by a company called Dapol in 1.76 scale,and the new sets of firemen in the 1.76 scale by FBM(Fire Brigade Models).There are 2 sets of these typical 1950's/1960's period firemen,one is a pump crew set,the other being known as a ladder set.
There are 8 figures in each set of firemen in different positions,but some are the same in both sets,well worth adding to your collection though.
I've just finished painting the WW11 set of NFS figures by FBM,so a picture will follow soon.
