Fire - a Memory of Sopley.

I too was at RAF Sopley and I remember having a call out to a fire at married quarters which was some distance from the camp. Up we roared in our little flat lorry towing a fire pump at 16 MPH flat out only to find when we arrived that the Bournemouth Fire Brigade had arrived before us from 12 miles away and put out the fire. But at least we got a good cheer.
