    Boots – This is from Bob Campbell {Old codger, beard and glasses} who sang down the teletalk to you!

    Just a wee question about the kit list above, The Fire Blanket? I don’t remember this as being ‘official kit’ in our Group? Any chance of a photo? Perhaps for the re-union?

    You call it a ‘Bofors Stretcher’? My recollection was that – if it’s the same as I remember – way back in the day i.e. late 60s, It was called a ‘Robertson Stretcher’? To be used for casualty removel from the post

      Hi Bob, the original fire blankets were a white asbestos type, in a red tin drop base wall box near the Post door, during the 1980’s these were replaced with fibreglass ones, usually green in the same case. I’ll get a photo to you by email. The Bofors stretcher may be the Robertson stretcher, although most definitely stamped by Bofors as the manufacturer, these are a folding hardboard affair to which the “patient” would be tied for extraction from the Post.
