Popular Post Firemack Posted November 4, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted November 4, 2021 (edited) I got a call from an old friend earlier this year that asked me if we would bring the Radnor B75 to the Wilmington Delaware Fire Departments 100th Anniversary Parade and Muster. For fun during the Covid break I tore down the Hale pump with some help from The Famous Supplee Brothers -Dan and Bill from Oreland. It took longer to rebuild the pump than it took to restore the whole truck, but got it wrapped up in time for Memorial Day. During the pump rebuild I had time to clean and paint most of the frame, pump and running gear, so most the hard work was complete to detail the truck for the Wilmington Parade. The night before decided to take my dog Gambit to the Parade- he is a large sheltie but makes a good imitation Dalmatian! Wilmington had 4 B75 pumpers and 4 B95 pumpers. 2 were in the Parade and muster. Over 100 trucks attended and a total of 6 B model pumpers were at the Muster! Had a great time at the Parade and Muster. We have to congratulate the guys from WFD, they did a great job organizing the parade and muster. We were honored to be awarded first place 1950-1969 Fire Company owned Truck and Gambit won the Mayor's Choice award.
