In July 2021 we featured the 1939 Dennis Trailer Pump as we acquired it, see The Dennis Fire Pump Trailer. (

It has now been totally restored by Janki Palmer and his team at Sandstone and is now ready for display. Have a look at our photo gallery to see the pump in  all its splendour.

We could do with some help if any of our readers have information as to what decals would have been on the pump, other than the brass “Dennis” badge, as we have no reference for this. If you can help, contact Dave Richardson on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We have now received a web site link from Keith Simmons to the Manchester Firefighting Museum, Fireground, where they have three of these Dennis trailer Pumps in their collection. Judging from the pictures and the restoration done at Sandstone, Janki Palmer and his team have done a magnificent job!
