It is the D F B's 150th Anniversary next year and there is a guy on another site looing for information on their involvement in any of the incidences from 1916 through the Civil War as he is putting their history together. If anyone nows anything I will send you the link.

Great photos Trev M

Cheers guys, Jordo if you send that link on I can pass it on to Marshy one of the guys in the photo , he is well up on the history of teh brigade so would say he'd be able to source a lot of relevant information.

Is there any text of their Belfast trip - just the Dun Laoghaire experience?
Has Marchy any published or unpublished material
In particular, if this quote can be substantiated?
Gasworks vacuum - To a Dún Laoghaire (Dublin area) fireman the most haunting sight were not the horribly wounded dead, but those without a blemish. When the city’s gasworks exploded, there was a temporary vacuum.[citation needed][clarification needed] This smothered all fires and all life. Windows, slates, and all loose material were sucked from the houses. Those inside, mostly still lying in their beds, were lifeless, their eyes wide open with fright, and their mouths wide open seeking a breath.[citation needed]

I'm a Brigade enthusiast myself Trev M. My Uncle Enviro has me hooked on them every since they days of watching Londons Burning and I have many a piece of Dublin and London Fire Brigade memoribilia. I was wondering if you or anyone else had pictures of the Old Dun Laoghaire fire Station back when it actually was one, the one in off York Road. I remember it well as a fire station and when Kill avenue opened but dont ever remember seeing an engine come out of the old one or seen inside it having been inside KOTG may times

Leposean.

Snowwhite has a relative possibly in "the job", one of the Brown lads from Sallynoggin whomI went to school with, contact her by p.m and see it you can hook up.
I hope to bring a London 'bit' over in May'

I had to look that up myself Enviro.

"The Great Martyr Euphemia (Greek), known as the All-praised in the Orthodox Church is a Christian Saint"

Is She the Patron Saint of Busses or something? :D

I agree, even for silly little jobs like rescuing our pomeranian who got his head stuck in a garden gate..that was embarrassing :oops: but they got him out, and we had a good laugh :D ....their comment..'Well, it was different' . What would we do without 'em
