I was not sure about man in the foreground, but asked a lady in Dalavich and she is sure his name is Peter Morrison. Her family worked with horses and she said that it is Peter Morrison also on the front cover of the Touchwood History forestry booklet called "Smell of the rosin – noise of the saw" probably taken about the same site.’
