John Drewitt was my roommate at Benmore Forestry school Argyll in 1958-59. I did my 6 weeks exchange at Gwydyr in 1959. However When I migrated to Australia in 1963 Forestry openings were limited and I changed careers for mining in Queensland.

I was a student at the Gwydyr F.T.S. and qualified as a Forester in July 1958. During that time I made many friends and would welcome the opportunity of making contact should any remember me from those days?

I was at Gwydyr the following year. Among your instructors would have been Fred Purser, Alan Powell, Ted Waddilove. I look back at my two years with fond memories, and quite an experience.
