Wolesley or Morris Commercial fire brigades

Hi there, can anybody help me with information about Wolesley or Morris Commercial fire brigades, at Ward end or Adderly st.
Somebody has recently contacted me seeking information about an Austin Gypsy fire tender that he believes was used at a BMC plant in Birmingham, possibly Wolesley or Morriss.
The registration number is JOG630E.
If anybody out there has any information they can post then I will pass it on to him.
Cheers.

I used to be a paper kid working for Westwoods at the Maypole.
I might even have delivered your "Mail", streamboy !
Ah the Saturday matinee, cheering the cowboy with the white hat and booing the baddie with the black one.

Hi Streamboy - I lived in Stotfold Road for a couple of years but my sister lives on Druids Heath.

Perhaps we need a thread for Maypole Memories if we do not already have one running - if so I will move these specific posts to that.

Funny old world I delivered papers for Westwoods, all around the Maypole area, Despatch Post and evening mail, 3 bags of papers on a sunday and the Argus on saturdays, all for 9bob (45 pence).

Hi Rover, I have contacted the Gypsy owner and asked him to send me a few photos , so if he does I will post them on forum for you to see.
Not sure if we can post email address on forum so if we can I could send them to you direct.
