For some time, the team have been trying to locate some of the very early (1960/70) type cycle lamp brackets that were used to carry the personal lamps which were hung in the rear cabs of LFB appliances.
The search had proved fruitless until one day, group member Mike West, happened upon a modern reproduction version owned by Paul Slade of " Fire Brigade Models".
Paul kindly allowed the group to borrow it in an effort to source a manufacturer who would be willing to make a small batch for 240FLM. The hunt for a willing fabricator led Mike to a small company called JACCS metal fabrications based in Kings Langley, Near Watford. Herts. and the team there were more than helpful in taking on the project.
In fact, Chris the manager there, kindly got one of his team, Eddie, to make us 6, paint them beautifully, he then proceeded to donate them free of charge to the group. We are so grateful to them, especially as we had never been to them before, for their generosity
