The three engines were a rare 1891 Shand Mason horse-drawn steamer and two other classic fire engines: a 1929 Ahrens Fox and a 1939 Dennis Big 6. Several members of the Retired Members and Wives Association attended the event, including the oldest living retired firefighter in NSW, 99-year-old Fred Orriel. Fred turns 100 on 9th March 2005 and the Brigade and Retired Members and Wives Association intend to arrange a special event to celebrate Fred's Brithday. Retired firefighters in their old firefighting uniforms added a sense of authenticity to the occasion and were only too happy to describe their experiences on the three appliances. The listing of these fire engines is important for the NSWFB as it reflects our journey to become one of the world’s leading fire and rescue services. It also guarantees that their significance will not be lost on future generations. The picture above shows from left to right:- Retired Inspector Bruce Johnson, Retired Station Officer Fred Orriel, Retired Inspector Ted Thompson and Retired Station Officer Tony Hayman.
