Forestry men and Timber Corps women at Loch loy

This photograph showing some Forestry men and Timber Corps women around and in a rough Scots pine is courtesy of John Baillie, Garmouth. The photograph was taken in Loch Loy forest (near present day Culbin Forest) where the trees were being felled by the Home Grown Timber Supply Department a section of the Forestry Commission set up during the war period.
John can name the three people standing high in the tree as Ella Watt from Dallas on the left, James Forsyth from Lessendrum in the middle and Violet Hewson from Lossiemouth on the right. The other named person is Jock MacHardy from Elgin on the left of the group on the ground. It is thought the man on the extreme right came from Elgin/Nairn area.
Please check large version to see if you can name more people. Their names and any other names associated with these operations around 1945 would be very welcome.
