It certainly did Ian, was it vandalism or was it manufactured so there were no obstacles to building the Pheonix park?

I miss Fogriders input too, we seem to have lost quite a few good/interesting posters recently who expertise in their field is surely missed

Well, I'm humbled. I've just been looking for the photo of the Overseas Column in Centrals yard (didn't find it ) and saw this post. In reality, the small number of people abusing the site is minimal in relation to the lovely and interesting people who make this site so interesting . So, spat over,  back to great memories of Nottingham and it's life.

Regards all.....

Re Ian123's great photo of Blue watch, Central,1938, I mixed up Hull City Police/Fire Brigade with Nottingham, I don't think Nottingham was ever a Police Fire Brigade.

My apologies to those I misled.

It's pre-war AFS uniform, the 'sergeants ' markings would be in red. Same period, 1938 to August 1941.

 

The I think the guy, dead centre is George Hodson, who was Deputy Chief at the time of the Dakins fire , 1969, and soon after Chief Fire Officer. I remember  him telling me he was in the AFS.

This is a bit late, but Nottingham WAS a Police fire Brigade back from the early part of the 19th century. The Chief Constable being responsible for the running of the brigade. That ended in 1941 when the National fire service was formed. I get there in the end...….
