Series II - Land Rover Angus Firefly
« on: May 26, 2012, 07:46:23 AM »
Hi there all

I know its not Military - but another uniquie piece of Land Rover Fire Engines in Australia.

They were built by Angus Fire in the UK, and 4 were brought into Australia for Emergency Response duties for the Snowy Hydro Scheme only 3 remain in Australia,  these vehciles replaced the original SI SWB Fire Engines (yet to be found)

They are the fitted with the 2.25 petrol engine, with larger fan & oil coolers to assist with engine temperature as the 300gpm PTO driven pump makes the small engine struggle.

I purchased it from Lake Crakend Back resort, and need to stress its not been restored but refurbished.

Pictures as stationed at Jindabyne


All the best

Wayne

I have picture of the Port Authority FC Fire Engine - will try and find them.

As for leads, I like to investigate all that I am told about as you still hear of a few barn finds.

All the best
