Tarleton Fire Engine
Date: Between 1948 and 1955
Notes: Fire Engine: Dennis Ace. Registration: DPU 15.
Firemen shown (Left to Right Back) Jimmy Latham, Eddie Farrell, Bill Eatough, Richard Townsley, Alan Sutton, Alf Roland. (Left to Right Front) Raymond Golifer, John Johnson

Roger Mardon contributes: This is a Dennis Ace that was new to Chigwell Urban District Council Fire Brigade, Essex, in May 1936.  It would have passed into the National Fire Service (NFS) on 18 August 1941 when the fire service was nationalised. After the war the service was returned to local authority control and in England and Wales the 146 counties and county boroughs became the new fire authorities, effective from 1 April 1948 when for some reason DPU 15 joined the fleet of Lancashire County Fire Brigade.  I believe the appliance went out of service in 1955 so we can conclude that your picture was taken between 1948 and 1955.
