Product Description

A History of Firefighting in Cambridgeshire,¬†Eddie Baker’s second book, describes the history of firefighting in the county of Cambridgeshire from the very early days of the village volunteers up to the modern day service.

Beginning with pre-war services and insurance fire brigades, the book moves on to wartime services and the AFS before examining Fire Brigades in detail, including Huntingdonshire County Fire Service, the Isle of Ely Fire Service and the Peterborough Volunteer Fire Birgade.

The book is richly illustrated with over 250 colour and monochrome images which capture the incidents and events over this period. A detailed appendix at the end of the book includes information on fire appliances, the ‘Rules and Regulations of the St Neots Volunteer Fire Brigade‘, and there is a glossary full of useful terms and definitions.
