75th Anniversary of Forestry Commission

Edinburgh Castle, Great Hall - WERE YOU THERE?

The photograph taken by Douglas Green the Forestry Commission photographer on the 10 Nov 1994 was at the gathering of people invited to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Forestry Commission by Right Honourable Ian Lang MP then Secretary of State for Scotland. Invitees had the opportunity to take part in a short tour of the castle and to view Scotland’s crown jewels.

The image is courtesy of Graham Hamilton, Inverness, who along with David Foot (Surrey) provided the names on the list below against the numbers added to the photograph. Many have still to be named and your help would be welcomed to help fill in all the gaps and to correct any mis- identifications and name spellings.
