OK, what are they up to?

Jane Dineen sends this odd 1982 offering. As she says, it looks as though the team are trying to find out how many buckets of rocks it takes to fill a site hut. On display Steve Vaughan, Arwel Barrett and John Parry, amongst others.

Does the clue lie in the padlock and the roof being folded back on itself? I think whoever had the padlock keys must have gone AWOL so the troops, ever keen to dig, took the roof off the toolshed and got their kit out through the resulting aperture. The fact that people are wearing pullovers and jackets indicates it's probably early in the day which is another circumstantial detail in favour of my theory. Anyone remember this episode?
