'The Flying Pig' (1989)

'The Flying Pig' (1989)
Seen amongst the day-to-day detritus of a normal working factory is FPC 448, a 1936 Dennis Ace Pump, at the old Dennis Works in Guildford. It had been the Dennis Works appliance from new, and I believe it was the works ‘pet’, looked after by the young apprentices/technicians at the factory.

Why ‘Flying Pig’ – I think that ‘snout’ might be a small clue! The Dennis Ace chassis was also widely used the basis of small capacity bus, and they also gained the same nickname.
