Standard Gwynne Light Trailer Fire Pump


Fire-fighting Restoration Project





Two of the purposes of the Standard Motor Club are to promote interest in the marque and to save as many of its products as possible. This website is a tool for doing both of these things and if every page I produce results in just one other Standard being saved then that makes my job that much more worthwhile.


I hoped that the page on Standard Gwynne Fire Pumps that I produced a few weeks ago would raise the profile of these neglected machines and hope that more of them will be rescued. Brian Murrish in Cornwall has done just that by going out to find and buy this example, for restoration.


The Pump, which is based on the Standard Flying 8 engine and is complete with its original trailer is now safely in Brian's garage. These are some items missing, principally the magneto and firehoses, so Brian is on the lookout for those. If you know of the missing items Brian would be pleased to here from you. If you know of another pump that needs saving, please save it or at least let the club know where it is.


Please send any sightings to the webmaster
