Early experimental colour film footage of this company has now been found:

While the Salamanders are obviously uncouth ne'er-do-wells, I really like the actual Metropolitan Fire brigade uniforms, I considered making some from ACW or British Naval officers. If anyone knows a better source I'm interested :)
The long boots were rare by the end of the 19th Century, so not necessarily needed.





So many projects..... so little time.......

Dean, I looked into this thanks to another thread back in May and came to the same conclusion. I also thought about using French Cuirassier helmets; quick head swap and a few alterations here and there and Bob's yer Aunt's live-in lover! Job done.

Something like this:
