Women's Timber Corps based at Glenkindie House

Photograph courtesy of Margaret Angus (nee Stewart), Huntly.
Glenkindie House in Strathdon, Aberdeenshire was a base and living quarters for groups of the Timber Corps over the war period 1942 to 1946. Margaret recalls that over that period many girls left but also that they were joined by at least three groups of girls from other locations where the timber work had been completed.

A group of the Timber Jills at Glenkindie House, Strathdon, Aberdeenshire (circa 1946) mostly in their civilian dress. Some names are known but over the 56 years since many are not recalled. Margaret would welcome any information and confirmation on identities. Please click on large picture for the numbers.

I am trying to help my mother find a friend called Robin Kidd who was in the WTC at Benmore Forest in 1942. I wonder if you can help?
Thank you
