Whitelees Forest - draining with ploughs
Photoslide found in Aberdeenshire District Office with annotation 'Cross draining, very soft, all winch work, Whitelees 1976'
This is a different team from that shown is pictures 273 and 274 although the machine types are the same. In this case the two tractors are again pulling the draining plough by winch cable acoss the ploughing furrows. Both tractors are stopped with anchors on and the rear tractor is winching the plough in. The registration on the lead tractor looks like EHM686J and the one nearest is EHM723J. The driver has a passing likeness to Donny Junor from the Blackisle (a Northern Conservancy employee)but very uncertain as the image quality is not good.
Any iformation on location, tractor types and drivers is very welcome.
