Looks like they are stripping topsoil. D9 at the rear?

Thanks for that Broady, as a junior engineer in those days we just knew people by their first names. I was told informed that he came over during the war and then stayed.

Not sure on the D9 as I have been told Macs only got their first ones 1964/65.
