Restorer seeks Ford fire engine history

by the editors

Military memorabilia collector Roger Wilkinson has recently purchased
an old Waitati fire engine, and is looking for some history of the
vehicle.

The red Ford truck has signwriting 'Blueskin VFU, Waitati' on the
door, and has an ex-military appearance.

Roger is looking to restore the appliance to roadworthy condition, and
would be grateful for any history on the appliance, including photos.
