‘The three lorries are from left-
1. The orange one is a GUY known as the big J which was a Pulp Mill lorry driven by Willie Neil who lived at Corpach but he was originally from Aberfeldy.
2. The second one is a Leyland Mastiff which was owned by a Davie Coutts who was also a Pulp Mill driver but started on his own and he double shifted the lorry with his driver Ian Burns from Fort William.
3. The third was a Leyland Octopus which was the one that I was driving.
The photograph was taken at carpark at the Pulpmill - note the amount of woodchip at rear of drivers from left Willie Neil, Ian Burns, Duncan Cameron, Weigh Beidge Operator and Brian Fletcher’
