GLC-LFB - Experimental mini-pump fire engine Featured 20 Oct 2011 Image

GLC-LFB - Experimental mini-pump fire engine

Based on a Ford Transit, the London Fire Brigade trialled a series of mini or first-strike fire engines. Seen here is a transit which carried a crew of four, 100 gallons (450 litres) of water, a hose reel, compact fire pump and a hook ladder. Intended as a response to inner city areas and the growth of shopping centres, the vehicle was placed at a number of stations on evaluation. Despite some favourable comments on its introduction, none of the mini fire engines were brought into general operational service

Wreck of HMS Vindictive, Ostend Harbour, Belgium, WW1 Featured 20 Oct 2011 Image

Wreck of HMS Vindictive, Ostend Harbour, Belgium, WW1

View of the wreck of HMS Vindictive in Ostend Harbour, Belgium, during the First World War. HMS Vindictive, an Arrogant-class protected cruiser, was launched in 1897, served throughout the war, was fitted out for the Zeebrugge Raid and took part in fierce action on 23 April, when her upperworks were badly damaged by gunfire. She was sunk as a blockship at Ostend during the Second Ostend Raid on 10 May 1918. The Zeebrugge and Ostend Raids gave the ship celebrity, and her bow section has been preserved in Ostend harbour as a lasting memorial. Date: May 1918

An American photo of a sunken British cruiser in the Bruges Canal at the sea port of Zeebrugge, Belgium, during the First World War, soon after the Zeebrugge Raid (23 April 1918). Another cruiser can be seen in the distance on the right. Three old British cruisers, HMS Thetis, Intrepid and Iphigenia, were filled with concrete and sunk to create a barrier as part of the raid. The port was used as a base by the German navy. Date: May 1918
