Description:National Fire Servicemen outside the Fire Station on High Street, Eccleshall. Eccleshall Fire Station was erected in High Street in 1891. More recently, the building has been a hairdressing salon and shop.

The Auxiliary Fire Service was formed from volunteers at the outbreak of war, to assist the regular Fire Brigades. The name was changed to The National Fire Service in August 1941 when the regional regular Fire Brigades and the AFS were merged. After the war the NFS was dissolved and Fire Brigades returned to being organised on a regional basis.
