When I joined the service in September 1974 I spent about two and half years stationed at Llanelli Station. After this period I transferred to my home town Ammanford.

I started to cut out articles from the local paper pertaining to Ammanford Station, of Incidents, various Fire Safety and Social happenings.

I have therefore split the Fire Pics sections into 2 categories, those before and those after I arrived at Ammanford.

This section is before I arrived.
