I asked a fireman this question and was told that the Union wouldnt allow it, reason being if a squaddie used the equipment there was no telling the condition of it on return, it would then need testing and insecting which would mean the equipment being off the road for that purpose.

Basically they didnt trust us.

Very good question, I believe it has something to do with having it blessed by a Entomologist. Ooooooops :oops:
 
Expect to get emails from Nigeria soon asking if you want to deposit money in a bank and invest in the great Fire Engine Market thats about to take off.

So best we ensure we can take the damn things off the unions, not owned by the unions are they?

If your going to cross a picket line you have to be prepared for anything including dishing out 'bloody ears'
