    The Pioneer No.1 dated 1938. I can't find any other information and would be delighted to hear more information. This is for display in my garage beside other 1930s/40s memorabilia and my 1941 Chevy Pickup

      well the sticker say in case of fire ..,so it for putting out fires ? ..cant read the bottom part,.. a close up and a few more pictures would help.... thanks

      ok the bottom says strike the knob..so it must be charge with some kind of gas to spray a fire retardant chemical ...my guess...more info on your end would be nice... like size and so on ...don't be shy lol

      Thanks. On closer inspection I found a company name and then after lots more searching I found this - http://www.gracesguide.co.uk/File:Im1912IM-Walk.jpg - the same model but a bit earlier. I've now contacted the local history group in Laisterdyke to see if they have any history on the company.
