This photograph shows the Louth Fire Brigade in 1947, and includes firemen R. McDonald, A. Marsh, J. Cook, F. Bridger, and A.E. Espin.
The photograph was provided by Sally Brown, the daughter of A.E. Espin (known as Pete Espin), who joined the service in 1947 and quickly rose through the ranks to become Station Officer in 1963.
He remained in this rank until his retirement in 1986, and sadly passed away in November 2005.
