Willie Bermingham from Longwood, Ireland, posted this picture of his newly acquired 1977 Shelvoke SPV Crash Tender which has been abandoned in the corner of as field for the past 8 years. He reports that it is well worth restoring and posted a video of it being towed out of the field. These crash tenders appear to have continued S&D’s reputation for long service. Possibly there are some still in service.
Dave Madden from Nottingham tells us that he hasn’t had this SPV turntable ladder vehicle shown bottom left very long and he has quite a lot of work to do on it. But it’s great to learn of another SD survivor.
