This has been on before (or one very like it) but I have been given a good copy of it by Billy McKinley to rescan.

The appliance would be the Dennis Light 4 DZ 6866 bought by Lisburn Council in 1938. Following WW2 and the setting up of the Southern, Northern and Western Brigades and eventually FANI the pump found itself serving all over NI.

After service is was privately owned and through time, ended up back with Lisburn Council. It is now stored at the Ulster Aviation Society hanger at the old Maze site.

Its claim to fame was a starring role in the Richard Attenborough film "Closing the Ring" part of which was set and filmed in Belfast.

Sadly, I don't have any connection to it now. It was for a time in the care of the NI Fire Service Historical Society but due to events beyond our control it had to be returned to Lisburn Council and the Society stopped meeting.

I'm quite sure you could arrange a visit to the Maze through the UAS and get to view the machine.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

David.
