Information Wanted

A Member of our Society who is researching the Fire Service came upon these two photographs of Worsbrough ARP Control Room and one of the Trailer Pumps which were part of the Auxiliary/National Fire Service in Worsbrough. The Control Room was in the cellar of the Keel Inn, Green Street, Worsbrough Dale and it is believed that the Fire Station was at the same place. Any information about the Fire Station, ARP and any relatives who might have served and were members of either during WW2 would be appreciated.
