Payment for Fire members

Super Applications Received


9th October 1941





The Clerk to the Llandilo Urban Council reported to the monthly meeting on Tuesday that he was seeking an interview with the Area Fire Force Commander, Mr. F. J. May, on the question of payment to members of the local Brigade following a fire at Danyrallt Mansion in July, 1940.

Of the £23 9s. 4d. paid by the insurance companies, the Council agreed to pay fire brigade members for services 3s. each for the first hour, and 2s. for each subsequent hour in attendance at the fire, with 5s. extra for the captain.

After doing this, there would still be some money left for the Council.
