The image is courtesy of Dave Stewart, Dufftown, from a collection of papers belonging to his father George Stewart.
This image was taken from the final Journal of the Forestry Commission published in 1969 and was in George Stewart’s collection. The full journal can be accessed via: http://www.forestry.gov.uk/pdf/FCJO036.pdf/$FILE/FCJO036.pdf
The two pages of staff names and designations have been combined and below the same surnames appear in the same order but with first names added where remembered. The pages also list the office and back room staff down to Clerical Office (CO) level whose names seldom appear in reports and historical papers. See large image and PDF for the full list.
