Old and new fire tenders outside the Gordonstoun Services Centre

Over 50 former student Fire fighters and members of Grampian Fire and Rescue Services joined current Gordonstoun Fire fighters and the Chief Fire Officer of GFRS to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the School’s Fire Service.

Guests enjoyed browsing archive material relating to the Service over its 70 year history, and were then treated to a display of current RTC techniques by the Lossiemouth retained crew, as well as a practice drill by Gordonstoun and a drive past by the Fire Heritage Society in their beautifully restored 1915 appliance.
