Benmore Forest Area – Dunoon

Photograph courtesy of Sandy Gordon, Forres area, whose father James Gordon was a long service forester in the Forestry Commission.

This group of what is assumed to be foresters have gathered at Benmore Forest and is the second group shot in the area following on from the one in front of the Forester Training School (No 3629). The men are not wearing any sort of badge or society identity which could mean that this is a group of colleagues on a forestry outing say the tenth anniversary of graduating from the Beaufort Forestry School? However on the back of the photograph a Badge No is quoted 3A70845 and any information on this would be very welcome.

The numbers allocated are judged to be the same as those allocated in the Forester Training School line up but this is by no means guaranteed. Letters have been assigned where there are no apparent matching numbers. The only person that can be named is James Gordon as No 11.

Any information on the other members of the group would be very welcome.
