Another image has been found, taken at the same time as the one above. This offers names too on the original print and gives us extra details – so, for instance we should be able to pick out Ronnie Citrine with his Clarke Gabel-esque moustache! BUT: Some names/faces do not match up on both images like Citrine who is marked as Russell Barton on the top image! How frustrating!
L to R: E. Trimmer, K.C. Easton, Ronnie Citrine, L.K. Garstin, D.P. Bowles, D. Wells, A.D. Moore, Russell Barton, G. Woodwark, Micheal Hargrave, J.R.E. Jenkins.
