KBW702S 1979 Land Rover Series 3 HCB ANGUS 2 1/4 Petrol Fire Engine

This was a HCB ANGUS stock appliance,diecast models, in 1978 Courtaulds Works Fire Brigade were looking for a new Fire Engine,http://www.voguediecast.com/, it was then adapted by HCB to the companys specification.

I am not sure why the Land Rover had a Low roof and the pumpbay was lower than the normal HCB built ones, I have no definate Courtaulds Location for where the Land Rover Served, I think it remained in service untill 2002, it then went into several owners and was at some point sold on ebay.

It was bought by a Land Rover collector in Norway, was shiped over to Norway where it lay in a shed under a motorway with alot of other land rover and in 2010 the collection was disposed of by Craddocks of Cannock in Staffordshire most of the collection was returned to UK, and sold at Auction in september 2011, I bought KBW702S for preservation.

I have been woring on the land rover since I got her replacing the roof with a normal one as it was not practical to keep the original one as it was to low for me to drive, The Land Rover was MOT`D and should be attending shows soon.

This has been shown to have real benefits for someone's mental health. Exercise increases endorphins in the body which help people to feel good, but activities that make you sweat are not the only one that produce that feeling.

Psychologists suggest that there is a state of concentration called flow. This is a state of mind where the person loses themselves in a particular activity. It creates a great sense of well being. This can sometimes be achieved through hobbies.

Gardening is a very popular interest. It combines being out of doors, with a closeness to nature and the encouragement of natural beauty. Creating a garden is a long term project that takes patience and dedication.

Often gardeners prefer to dedicate their outdoors space to vegetables, enjoying the pleasure of fresh home grown vegetables and the satisfaction that comes from nurturing them.

Creating a scrapbook is another popular hobby. These are not just places to stick tickets, photographs and cuttings. They can also be carefully decorated with fabric and colourful materials. Some people hold scrapbook parties where people socialize, chat,http://www.voguediecast.com/, enjoy cake and coffee while working on scrapbooks. Activities like making soap, cushions or soft toys also have their devotees.

Collecting and trading is a popular activity. Any number of goods can be collected, but usually they're items that display a degree of artistry and craftsmanship. Porcelain plates, toy cars, model trains, stamps, sporting souvenirs and autographs to name but a few all have their collectors. Collecting fairs are increasingly popular.

With the advent of digital technology it is easier than ever before to take high quality photographs. This has led to an explosion of interest that has resulted in new photography groups springing up. These might cover particular aspects of photography like landscape, portrait or fine art.

Hobbies are one of the joys of life. They can give people purpose, satisfaction and pleasure. They inspire people to learn new skills, make new friends and live more fulfilled lives. Williams
