Fire service historian and author

Roger Mardon





Can your photographs and other material help to preserve the history of the fire service in Britain and Ireland?


I am always interested in acquiring good quality photographs of classic and vintage fire engines when they were in service. If your negatives, slides or original prints are looking for a new home then please contact me. If you do not want to dispose of your pictures then would you consider lending them to me for copying? They would be carefully handled and returned promptly.


As part of an ongoing project to record the complete history of fire engines in Britain and Ireland, I am keen to to know about those that served in your area before the Second World War and in the early years after the war. If you can provide substantiated details of any vehicle, its age or year of manufacture, the make and model, the registration number, or the brigade and fire station at which it served, then I would be pleased to hear from you.


Any historical information and printed material about the British fire service, its fire engines and equipment will help in this project to record part of our heritage before it is too late.


Can you help?  If so, please CONTACT me and let me know.
