Aberdeen Fire Brigade (Torry Branch)
Aberdeen Fire Brigade (Torry Branch). This was a voluntary service. Robert Fergus Abercrombie (Second from left) was firemaster. c.1940.

Local historian, Ed Fowler, has been in touch to suggest this image shows the part-time firemen of the Torry Auxiliary Fire Station. Ed states the station was based in Cordiner's Garage on Menzies road and was one of nine set-up around Aberdeen in 1939, just prior to the outbreak of WW2.

The firemaster in this image is sitting on one of the trailer pumps that was issued to the auxiliary stations.
