Glentress Forestry School, Unidentified Class
Photograph is part of Bill Stoddart’s collection of images taken when he was a lecturer at several Forester Training Schools. The photographs were handed in by his daughter Lilian Allan at the Forestry Memories drop in day at Huntly on 11 June 2010.
The Glentress students look as though they have just finished an outside working day and heading back to their huts.
No people have been identified so far although there is a similarity between person number 18 in this photograph and person number 21 in photograph 695.
It is probable the image dates from around 1948-1950 but any help to identify people and fix a year would be very welcome.
Can anyone place a make and model on the types of vehicles in the picture?
Jim McIntyre has identified No 20 Struan Stewart
Lillian Allan has identified No 17 as Andy Hislop, No 18 as Alan Kerr (who used to sleep in a hammock at the school) and No 21 as Bill Baggot.
