    Default Mk2 Canadian Fire.

    A good condition G.S.W made Mk2 with it's original factory finish paint, it has an red F to the front for Fire/Fireman.
    As it was bought here in the Uk, I wonder if it was used by one of the 422 Canadians who came here during the war to fight fires due to bombing. Or is that a flight of fancy.
    But it must be remembered 3 members were killed while here helping us & another 3 seriously injured.
    Or it could have just been used in Canada only, & some how found it's way here.
    The shell is dated 1940, the VMC liner dated 1942.
