07/08/15 88 W, 1 I - + 1 - 2 Video - How British Firefighters Are Trained, 1957

Found by a reader via this Facebook posting, here's a dandy short clip of the Middlesex Fire Brigade demonstrating some of their skills on the training ground. The segment was produced by Pathe News. See source information. As for those vintage British "fire appliances," Yours Truly saw some of those in Phoenix last fall, at the Hall of Flame fire museum. See my pictures. Thanks Keith!
