A huge fleet of vehicles was put together, with the idea of creating mobile columns in readiness to move into areas affected by a hostile attack, or other emergency situation.

Full dress uniform or parade dress is the most formal type of uniforms used by military , police , fire and other public uniformed services for official parades , ceremonies , and receptions, including private ones such as marriages and funerals. Full dress uniforms frequently consist of a coat , trousers , dress shirt , and bow tie , along with full size orders and medals insignia. Design may depend on regiment or service branch , e. The length of the jacket may be thigh-length or have tapering tails at the back. In Western dress codes , full dress uniform is a permitted supplementary alternative equivalent to the civilian white tie for evening wear or morning dress for day wear — sometimes collectively called full dress — although military uniforms are the same for day and evening wear.
Auxiliary Fire Service
Its role was to supplement the work of brigades at local level. In this job it was hampered severely by the incompatibility of equipment used by these different brigades — most importantly the lack of a standard size of hydrant valve; the Auxiliary Fire Service and the local brigades were superseded in August by the National Fire Service. Members of the AFS were unpaid part-time volunteers, but could be called up for whole-time paid service if necessary; this was very similar to the wartime establishment of the police Special Constabulary. Men and women could join, the latter mainly in an administrative role. The services operated their own fire stations , each commanded by a Section Officer, and station areas were divided into Fire Beats, each under the command of a Patrol Officer.
