Benmore Forestry students practical lesson

This one of a set of images from photocopier scans and is courtesy of the staff at Glenbranter Forest Office.

Obviously a surveying practical lesson under way in the fields and grounds front of Benmore House. No doubt one the most frequently surveyed pieces of land in Argyll at this time.

Can any of the forestry students be named?

Bob Boyd, Northern Ireland, who was a student at Benmore at this time added the following information:

'The photo taken in front of Benmore House seems to be a surveying exercise and the people from the left are ; myself wearing blue coat, instructor Roddy MacDonald wearing deerstalker hat, Bob Cuthbertson holding short ranging rod, Maurice Clements holding long ranging rod, over Maurice's left shoulder is Walter McCloskey, over Maurice's right shoulder is Andy Orr, on the right side of photo is Bill Mason and Ian Reid. Judging from foliage colour this photo was taken in Autumn 1958 or 1959.'
