  • Hi Michael, Gordon Bass did work at Tilbury Fire Station and was there during the war years. He lived in Kelvin Road, Tilbury and his daughter Norma still lives in Tilbury. I fondly remember watching the fire engines leave the station and see them train in the yard as I lived at the corner of Kelvin Road next to the Station. Later my uncle Laurie Jordan was stationed there and his picture appears on another page

  • My Father used to talk about a fireman who he used to call “bassy”, so I presume that this is the fireman in the photo.
