Thursday 21st February

Syd House

Syd House's talk was titled "The Impact of WW1 on Scotland's Forests:
The Prelude to the Establishment of the Forestry Commission in 1919".

It was, as those who already knew Syd expected, very much more
interesting than the title might suggest. He described of course how
so much of Britain's forests went to make pit props and trench supports
during WW1 and how they have expanded since, with special emphasis
on Scotland. He also covered the role women played in the dangerous
work, and the way the work itself was done and has changed since.
