The GLC-LFB was created on 1 April 1965. A series of photos was commissioned of each type of fire engine, either within or absorbed into the enlarged London Fire Brigade. The Brigade was divided into eleven Divisions, each with a Divisional HQ and a staff office. The BACV was stationed at each divisional HQ and attended all fires requiring BA or where assistance had been requested

GLC-LFB - Dual purpose water-tender fire engine

The GLC-LFB was created on 1 April 1965. A series of photos was commissioned of each type of fire engine, either within or absorbed into the enlarged London Fire Brigade. The Dennis fire engine seen here came into London from the Surrey Fire Brigade, Surrey's fire engines did not carry the 50 foot wheeled escape ladder, but a 45 foot extension ladder (as shown). These fire engines were converted to carry wheeled escapes until the escape ladders were decommissioned in the mid-1980s. 13.5 metre (45 foot) extension ladders were reintroduced across the Brigade
