On Tuesday 4th October 2022, 240FLM headed just the short distance north from its base in Romford up the A12 to Chelmsford Fire Station ready to collect our late brother, Sub Officer Peter Mcann. Peter had last served at Ilford Fire station.
We were warmly recieved by the duty watch there and the cameraderie we associate with the Fire Service was again evident.
A wonderful and touching parade took place at the Fire Station as 240FLM departed and made the short journey to the crematorium. On arrival, we were met by former watch colleagues who, suitably dressed in the firegear of the period, carried Peter into the service accompanied by a piper.
