With sorrow we record the death of Roy Tindall on 22nd October at the age of 86. Roy spent much of his working life as an Inspector at S&D and will be remembered by some of you.

We also learned of the death of Cicely Quin, widow of Stan Quin who was SDs Managing Director, on  5th November at the age of 87.

To those most affected by their deaths our condolences and remember with gratitude those who were once our work colleagues.


In recent weeks we have welcomed to the Group:-

Ronnie Farrington who worked for the S&D Manchester Depot in the 1970/80's including fire appliances. He wrote that he remembers taking the auto box out of a fire appliance when it was on the line at CFE at Winsford having its body fitted. We had to modify the flitch plate. I think it had a Perkins V8 engine and an Alison box in it happy days. There where around 15 of them in a line and we had to modify them all and we were on 3 days a week!

And also Mark Taylor whose father, Bill Taylor, was manager of the Birtley Service Depot in County Durham.

 One of Terryy Prince's preserved SPV Ex-London Fire Brigade fire appliances. Pump Escape Reg. No. YHV 187 T one of 48 WX's (21 t Reg and 27 W Reg.).
