A petrol trailer fire pump hauled by an ex-GWR Express Cartage van, 1940
Fire fighting by the GWR was a important job in the Second World War. Incendiary bombs (designed to start fires) were used extensively during the war and caused devastation across many of the countrys cities and towns. By October 1943 the GWR had in operation 250 petrol trailer fire pumps, as seen in this image from July 1940. They were located at stations, goods yards, docks and factories. This trailer is being hauled by an ex-GWR Express Cartage van which was salvaged from the scrap heap in order to carry out fire fighting duties
