Possible area is in a small valley south of the tight road bend between Greenskares and Afforsk. A HG Ammunition Nissan hut existed in the area. As Pvt Gill stayed at Minnonie, this was at one end of the small valley.
The location of the patrol would likely to be the Bridge over the River Deveron between Macduff and Banff. Also
the railway and roads around the area. Macduff, Banff and Gardenston all has small harbours
Most likely Blairmore House in Huntly.
