Testing a gravel pit arrester for stopping runaway jets, using an RAF lightning jet fighter. The idea was that an aircraft unable to stop before the end of the runway would be brought quickly and safely to a halt after being steered into a long pit filled with gravel.

Merryweather Fire King steam pump and crew , Southwark HQ. In 1899 Merryweather modified its steamer pumps to also propel the vehicle, and thus London's first non-horse-drawn fire engines arrived.
