1980: Racing ahead of the JCB ...

Robert Roberts contemplates one last bit of frantic cat-bashing to reveal some final puzzling detail as the JCB (not, as I originally wrote, the dumper truck) begins the backfilling at the end of the 1980 season. Work was usually at a pretty good pace but it became quite frenetic for a few days as we had a lot to finish off and no possibility of extending the season by an extra day or two.

A day or two earlier, all hands to the cuttings to finish it off. PWD on the left & Flight Lieutenant Southwood by his bucket looking towards a line of diggers, with Rowena Dutton below the theodolite tripod, ending with JP on the right. Digging, cleaning, planning and photography all at once. Anyone help with who else is in this one?
