FIREBOAT 39 PHOTOS
« on: May 26, 2009, 07:44:42 PM »

Several weeks ago someone was asking for info on fireboat39.

At the time I got in touch with Hampshire Fire and Rescue and spoke to Deputy Chief Officer Alan House who is their history man.
He told me that they were extremely busy at the time but would see what he could do.

Today these turned up in the post.
