"Occupations are not often easy to discern, yet it gives us an insight into the lives of our predecessors. I wanted to submit these names as a way of my thanking all those others who have contributed material that has helped me along in my family research."
(Note: Names are NOT in alphabetical order; instead they are listed
as they appear in the log book. For any given person here, the date
listed is for the FIRST mention of his name. As in the case of Capt. Lucot,
he appears from beginning to end of the log.)

they appear in the log book with dates/details as appropriate.
That a person's name appears in the log book does not mean they were a
fireman and where possible, the distinction is made.
If a first name does not appear, none was given in log book; spelling is
as it appears in book, when questionable due to handwriting (?) appears.
