Craig I think the year was 1971 as I know if another photo taken at the same exercise (I will try and look it out) The only person I recognise is the then Station Officer Jimmy Neish at the left of the picture with the white cap standing behind the equipment trailer which was affectionally known as the Horse Box because of it's shape
