Anthony & Laureen Willmott

The Real Cavalry

Anthony & Laureen WIllmott

A Short documentary I shot over a period of three years, documenting my Grandad's 30 years service in the London Fire Brigade, half of which were spent at Soho Fire Station "The busiest in the land".

Tony takes us through the reality of life in the LBF, sharing stories of memorable London fires, routines and the history. Laureen, his wife of over 40 years and my grandmother, lends her perspective on the strength and dedication it takes to be a LBF man.
