The building was heavily smoke-logged. As the crews entered the building the roof collapsed with fatal consequences. Station Officer Hawkins and fireman Batt-Rawden were both killed by the fall of debris. Fireman Gadd died later as a result of his injuries. Shown here are crews continuing to extinguish the fire within the shell of the collapsed warehouse

Southwark's Emergency Tender and crew. By the 1920s emergency tenders were developing into far more that just a carrier of firefighters with breathing apparatus and lighting at incidents.

Firefighters and winter snows, WW2 Featured London Fire Brigade Print

Firefighters and winter snows, WW2

The early winters of the Second World War were snowy with numerous falls of one or two feet and occasional falls (such as in 1940-1941) in which snow depths of up to 16 feet (drifts) were recorded. The south was quite badly affected, although more particularly the south west and Wales. The winter of 1939-1940 saw the supposed blizzard of the decade in Scotland and England when in late January snow fell widely. As seen here, wartime firemen were kept busy keeping their station yards free of snow
