  1. I am currently assisting in restoration of a Dennis F12 at the Canberra Fire Museum, Australia. We would appreciate photos of your F12 particularly the mounting brackets for the wheeled escape ladder at rear and roof of the appliance. If possible with the escape mounted and not mounted. This may help in retrofitting an escape to ours for the original brackets were removed after the Merewether Turntable ladder was placed in service and the escape was sold. Also measurements of the brackets would help. You can google Canberra Fire Museum for images. In appreciation of you assistance. Phil Donoghoe ex Senior Officer ACT Fire Brigade.

  2. I wanted to say a BIG Thank you to the team for taking my parents to their Golden Wedding Surprise Party. My Dad was a Leading Fireman, before he retired. The team looked great in their uniforms, as they arrived on the Esplanade, and drove them to the Dumbuck House Hotel, near Dumbarton. Their guests were delighted when the appliance arrived with the seriens on. Again, THANK YOU.

  3. Dave / Graeme,

I might get throught to Greenock one day.

  8. Hi David,
    Just a short note to thank your and your colleagues for a fantastic visit to the museum on Sunday. All of the Scouts from the 6th West Lothian Troop have ask myself to pass on their sincere thanks. I am sure others from the group will be visiting you in the future.
    It’s always a special event to invest a new Scout into the group and I’m sure none of us will forget the event on Sunday, a first for us.
    Thanks again
    Grant Lawrie, Scout Leader 6th West Lothian

  10. May I congratulate each and every one of you in your exceptional success in the opening of the new fire museum in Greenock. In these difficult economic times I have to applaud both SFR and Inverclyde District Council having the foresight to support this very worthy initiative. My biggest thanks goes however to all the Volunteers in SFRPG, who, without their tireless contributions over many years this museum just wouldn’t have been possible in the first place – well done and thank you.

  11. Great site guys.
    Keep up the superb work. Your museum sounds just cool. Will make a point to visit on our trip to Scotland next year.
    Keep safe
