Sports day at Glentress Forester School 1948
Photographs and images courtesy of Joan Park who has submitted some of her father, Hamish Park’s photographs from his days at Glentress Forester Training School in 1946-48.
The image shows events and organisation of the Glentress School sports day thought to be in summer 1948 when the 1946 and 1947 intake students numbering about 60 would be participating (or at least some of them).
Joan and her mother Jean comment:
‘Slow bike race...nearest camera.... Gordon Forbes’
A good overview of the sports field and also of the huts and what appears to be a vegetable garden. Can anyone comment on the camp layout and which huts were used for canteen, instruction or sleeping quarters?
