Drills, 26th ofMarch, Kit Change on Station.

Currently we get little feedback from people reading the blog. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments please use the facility below to contact us.

At drills on the 26th of March the crew were issued new fire tunics and overtrousers. They also exchanged our BA sets and our Gas tight suits were sent to servicing.



  1. Hi
    is this the new generation of fire kit or the same second generation Bristol kit?

    • Hi Gary

      Thanks for the comment.
      Yes it is the new generation Bristol Kit. I don’t know a lot about it other than it is lighter and doesn’t have a “use by date”. It looks to be woven differently which is only noticeable if you look closely, other than that it looks the same as the old kit.
