LFCDA-LFB Heavy fire Rescue tenders
The 1990s saw a new breed of fire rescue tenders, large and small, introduced into the London Fire Brigade. The heavy rescue unit carried a comprehensive range of cutting and spreading equipment, a larger crew, breathing apparatus and chemical protection suits. The light unit, whilst having lifting and spreading equipment, did not have the same scoop of equipment and carried a smaller crew. The picture shows the open compartments on one side of a heavy rescue unit.

Advert for Beetham Larola suntan lotion 1940
'Sun tan without sun burn'. To suntan becomingly yet without painful sunburn, the skin should always be bathed with larola. Exposure to sun, wind and salt-laden air brings no harm to your beauty if you use Larola regularly, for Larola gives both protection and lovely bloom.
