A young cadet recreated a picture taken of his father and grandfather to complete a sixty year family tradition of joining the fire brigade.
Owen Gunn, 16, joined the London Fire Brigade as cadet, following in the footsteps of the two generations that came before him.
Owen’s grandfather Colin Gunn became a firefighter in 1966 and posed for a photograph outside Southwark Training Centre on the day of his passing out ceremony.
Colin’s son, Crew Manager Nick Gunn, joined in 1988 and had his photograph taken in exactly the same place and is currently based at Romford Fire Station.
Colin, now 71, retired in 1991, but for a few years both father and son served in the Brigade at the same time.
Now Owen has had his image taken in exactly the same as he trains with the Fire Cadets to one day become a firefighter himself.
Dad Nick, 47, said: “Quite a lot has changed over the years. Fortunately, a metal cover is still visible on the ground where I had my photo taken 28 years ago.
“My mum was so pleased to see photos of her husband, son and grandson all wearing their Brigade uniform standing on the same spot.”
