Grant MacIntosh Harvesting Forester at Ardross
Photograph courtesy of Brian Fletcher, Conon Bridge.
One of a series of photographs that Brian Fletcher, a former Ogilvie’s Haulage driver, took while driving around the country of people and Forestry staff. This rather blurred image is of Grant MacIntosh, Harvesting Forester at Ardross, doing his rounds of the sites in a Ford Transit van kitted with birch Fire Brooms. The Fire Brooms were fitted to many Forestry Commission vans during the early spring and summer at this time to provide some equipment for any emergency call outs. Usually as the autumn wore on they were forgotten about and still remained on the vehicles in spite of there being little need for them.
