Mike Cotterell, c.1943
He served in the National Fire Service at Broadway during the Second World War.

Then as now the Broadway brigade members were on call from either their homes or their work during the day time. But during the night, for some of the war at least, they took turns to sleep at Charles Steward's builders yard which was being used as a temporary fire station.
