Support the LFB Museum!

The London Fire Brigade Museum is again threatened with closure.

The chair of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, Brian Coleman, tried once before to close the museum but it gained a reprieve. He made some very disparaging remarks at the time about brass helments - "once you've seen one..."

Please support the campaign to save part of our history - website for the Friends of London Fire Brigade Museum here.

So where is it?

Crumbs! It's in Southwark. Don't go all parochial on me.

I wasn't - but you hadn't said, and the Museum web site didn't say either.

Southwark is no problem. 'Hands across the water', and all that.

Don't tempt me! As a connoisseur of irony I might be tempted to set light to it - using old-fashioned Bryant & May matches, of course, after all it is a museum!

I would have thought the "Museum of London" would show the displays, if the fire brigade wanted to use the space for visits by Brian's big black Toyota.

I'm not surprised to hear Cllr Coleman has seen a lot of helmets,nor am I surprised to hear he is trying to shut the museum down, which would be an awful thing to do. Clearly he has no interest in the heritage of the service he chairs.
Mr Duff, I hope that the rozzers are reading this, and call round to have words with you after such shameful remarks. You bus pass wielding, soap dodging Tory anarchists are a menace to society.

Brass Neck is Cllr Coleman's speciality, not brass helmets.
