The fire appliance in the photo was the Mobile Control Unit (denoted by the red and white Battenburg marking)of Northern Fire Brigade and was based at Brigade Headquarters in Inverness.
Northern Fire Brigade (name change to Highland & Islands Fire Brigade in 1983)served Highland Region, Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles between 1975 and 2013.
The vehicle was replaced by a Ford control unit (Registration: LAS160Y).
The fire officer standing at the rear of the vehicle looks like Divisional Officer Donald MacLennan MIFireE who at the date of the photo (1980) was Divisional Commander of the fire brigade's "A" Division (covered Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey, Lochaber and Skye & Lochalsh).
