And some more about that rescue, with more pictures.

You can see how far forward the trailer went after it broke free. The comments are interesting.

I didn't see the responses from "Mr Barnard" Tony, but it sounded liek he ruffled some feathers????

Nice photos, but for the 4 members not wearing there full PPC . "

Definitely ruffled some feathers... I didn't have a problem with those guys working like that. Structural lids are heavy and bulky and can be more of a hindrance than a help.

One thing I liked was seeing a white-hat working! I used to work with an Ops Officer who was known to get in the back of the pumper with a plain helmet to go and lend a hand as a firie with the vols in one of his brigades.
