Genuine WW2 Fireman’s Lockers & Original Duty Board

Genuine WW2 Fireman’s Lockers & Original Duty Board

£0.00Price

Two true pieces of British history.

 

A genuine pair of wooden lockers and the original duty board (double sided) from a temporary WW2 fire station based in Warrington, Greater Manchester. National Fire Service, No.41 Fire Force, Station A.I.V.

 

The fire station was one of the “new fire forces” formed in 1942 only to be in existence until 1944.

 

The duty board details the Red, White and Blue watches with their members and their duties. Even showing if they were on holiday leave.

 

We have some provenance of its heritage, in the form of an email from the Greater Manchester Fire Service Museum.

 

The pair of them were discovered in Stockport, so they had only moved 24 miles in the last eight decades!

 

The wooden lockers are in extremely good condition, considering they are a minimum of 79 years old. They look every bit the part for an additional storage unit in a kitchen or utility room for coats, dusters, brooms, etc or in the bathroom for robes and loofah’s.

 

Measurements:

Lockers: 54cm wide x 38cm deep x 183cm high

Duty Board: 92cm wide x 153cm high
