Pointing Posts at Strathyre Forest

Photograph courtesy of William Fleming, Polmont who worked in Strathyre Forest as an apprentice Forest Craftsman and stayed in the hostel for a time around 1957-58.

The post pointing operation seems to be taking place inside a shed that was used as a shelter in wet weather. Willie has named the man on the left as forestry worker Jimmy Gibson who appears to be holding something in his hand. Any suggestions?

The boy on the right has the surname McGregor and Willie recalls that he worked with his father, forestry worker Peter McGregor, on various jobs in the forest.
