Preparing for a raid.

September 1941 and NFS Firemen re-stow their appliances in case of a night-time raid. The original fire station is only (just) able to house a pump and a heavy unit, so half of the neighbouring bus garage has been requisitioned for other appliances. All the vehicles are 1/76 Oxford Diecasts except for the bus (Corgi) and the Mobile Dam Unit (BW Models). The figures are MMS Models and converted Airfix.

Nice Mel, lots going on.
That hose they are carrying looks like the Canadian stuff, really heavy and not as flexible as the British hose.
