About this object

This is a Bedford 4x4 Fire Engine which was called a Pumper because it was often use to do a lot of relay pumping.

Originally used by Civil Defence in the United Kingdom, the Thornbury Fire Brigade imported the engine in 1968 at the cost of $6000, with only 23 miles on the clock. The fire engine was used on Stewart Island and it came in handy at the Invercargill Airport pumping up flood waters.
