Thought to be the retirement presentation to Winnie Watson about 1982 who was retiring from her administrative job in the Forest Research office at Newton. It seems that Winnie worked at Rosarie and also Teindland Forests (before they were amalgamated into Speymouth Forest) and joined the Research Office at some time in the early 70s. In all she had worked 13 years for the Forestry Commission the last 10 being with Research.
