With the amalgamation of Site 8 with No.3MU our Unit Fire Brigade extends a hearty welcome to all the members of Site 8 Fire Brigade who care to call when they are in the locality of Milton. Although the two stations are far apart we would like to feel that we are one brigade. We also welcome the volunteer teams that are competing in the Site Competition and sincerely wish them every success."

"They also serve" by W.F.Whitehead, Fire, No.8 Site.

'Engine, Petrol, Fire, Type B', Demanded, July Twenty three,
Is still 'N.A', it is a laugh, We ought to write its Epitaph,
In Progress, get a paragraph, Beside black bordered photograph,
To 'Senior Firemen' down below, Waiting there for us will be,
'Engine, Petrol, Type B', Perhaps its really just as well,
Our Static Tanks are dry as xxxx !.
