Beresford were specialists in building trailer pumps of which the "Stork"
is their most well known. As with other trailer pumps their main use was
during the last war, when they were produced in large quantities in order
to boost the fire fighting capability of this country. They were towed by
civilian cars and vans, and later by A.T.V.s or Auxilliary Towing Vehicles.
In this guise they continued in service with the Auxilliary Fire Service
during peace time.
