Clearing windblow in Glentress Forest about 1973

The photographs are courtesy of Stuart Mitchell, Peebles area, who formerly worked at Glentress Forest.

Two men, John Tammy and Ian Smart, snedding windblown trees in Glentress Forest near to the Ponds area.

Can anyone identify the chainsaw make from the photographs?

To my eye the moulded spark plug protection in the top cover and the apparently same overall saw colour (that would have been orange) would mean that these are Husqvarna saws. Jonsereds would have had silver top covers with red cases and if memory serves me the plug would have stuck out from the upper case, with just the black rubber plug cap for protection. Finally, the rear of the right handle guard is all in the one aluminium alloy casting, which on a Jonsered was separate and had a shock absorber joining the upper and lower parts of the rear handle together. So, I suggest that they are Husqvarnas. My regards, Bill
