Fire Brigade

"As a young boy, I was in love with the idea of becoming a firefighter - so much that I started cycling to fires etc and taking pics.

I got to know a lot about Lothian & Borders Fire Brigade,  and a lot of the firefighters.  But I grew up and discovered the world kind of pushing my  interest to one side, along with the hundreds of photos I had taken,

Line Rescue Team

"This photo is of the Tollcross firefighters who were part of the special 'Line Rescue' team.  The team was relatively new, and was on exercise at Salisbury Crags, when this photo was taken in 1998.  The teams have since gone on to save many people.

Tollcross and Newcraighall were the only two stations that had these teams.  The purpose of these teams was to rescue folk trapped on Arthur's Seat, Salisbury Crags, Castle Rock, etc.
