On the 25th November 2021, 240FLM set off on a long but worthwhile and honourable journey to Gloucester crematorium in Gloucestershire where we were able to provide an escort for the final journey of "Jim" Geogehan.
Jim was one of our founder members and had often appeared when 240FLM was in his area and always showed a keen interest in the progress of the restoration. Joining the LFB in 1969, Jim served in the old A and C Divisions before arriving as Sub Officer at K22 Wandsworth where he encountered 240FLM after her move from B29 New Cross. A good turnout of old colleagues was present to say farewell to a lovely gentle giant and very respected officer and fireman.
We also wish to express our gratitude to Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service for allowing us the privilege of overnight parking for the appliance at Gloucester North Community Fire Station.
