Do you have any relatives who belonged to the Stevenage National Fire Service?
The National Fire Service was formed in 1941 by amalgamating the wartime national Auxiliary Fire Service and the local authority fire brigades . It existed until 1948. The men (and women) all served part time, and performed a valuable and often dangerous service in the war.
The photo on this page shows the Stevenage firemen who were in service probably around 1944 or 1945. Some of the names have been added. Can you add some more? Maybe you know something about some of the men in the picture.
Do you know what the trophy was for?
Please add a comment if you can help.
