Dennis New World Fire Engine
Dennis New World Fire Engine
Date:1939
Registration:EBJ 732
Acquired by the Museum:1985
Current State:Fully restored and operational
This Fire Engine, registered EBJ 732, was purchased by Gipping Rural District Council in 1939 for use at Needham Market. It remained based there until 1950 when it was transferred to Bond St Fire Station in Ipswich where it operated until withdrawal in 1966.

It was then purchased by the Felixstowe Dock & Railway Company who used it as one of their emergency vehicle fleet until 1985. After 46 years of active service the Dock Company placed it on loan to the Museum in the spring of that year.

The Felixstowe Dock & Railway Company donated the fire engine, affectionately known as `Nellie' to the Museum in April 2006.
