News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

The appliance in the bay is a Commer K2 water tender introduced in the summer of 1966. However, at this time, these would have been allocated to wholetime stations, not retained ones so I think this photograph is approx 1971/2>. Appliances were allocated to retained stations from wholetime ones when their machines were due for upgrading.

Aylesham Fire Station was built in 1955.

A photograph of Aylesham Fire Station, I suppose around 1965/1970, looking at the motor-cycle.
