Footnotes

  • This Leyland Sherpa Fire Tender was constructed by Bridge Coachworks Ltd. of Ealing, West London and entered service with Rolls-Royce in the Midlands, its operations being restricted to movements off the public highway. The vehicle came out of service in April 2010 and at that time the odometer reading was just 7,475 miles. Entering preservation, the vehicle was restored by a well-known historic commercial vehicle restorer, work carried out including fitting of new brakes, new starter motor and new tyres as well as re-liverying in fire engine red. In May 2010 the vehicle was registered for road use and allocated the registration mark CRN 193V.

    During this year's rally season the vehicle has proved reliable, its 1,700cc, four-cylinder petrol engine returning 23mpg and at the time of cataloguing, with attendance at various events during the rally season the recorded mileage is just 10,150 miles. The vehicle is equipped with escape ladder and water pump which is described as being in first class order. Further equipment includes two spare wheels, hoses and hats and we feel CRN 193V would be suitable for going back into service, serving its original application, or indeed is eligible for events organised by the Historic Commercial Vehicle Society, the various fire engine clubs or indeed will be a very welcome entry (and admission pass) for traction engine and other historic vehicle rally display fields. Condition in all departments is described to us as good and this manageable size historic commercial vehicle comes with a Swansea V5C registration document, MoT certificate to May 2011 and current road fund licence.
