Local targets would have been the road and rail networks, around the Huntly area.

Training was conducted at Blairmore House in the locality.

Currently unknown but assume they had the standard weapons and equipment.

Norman Davidson (Forestry Worker) recalls two other structures in the wood, however is unable to locate them today.
