Great photo Roy,
I recognise a lot of faces but can't recall the names.
I can see Gordon Furneaux, and I think Peter Frost and Ronnie Dews.
Not so sure about the others.

I think that is Harry Eden third from right, back row. Derek Fisher 2nd from right 3rd row, for starters

What row do you mean Ron, 'cos I thought the kid that is third from left of the screen, second row up was called Bishop and that may be David Ball next to him, who is second from the left of the screen, second row up.
On the other hand I could have 'em all wrong.

Hi tags, it may be what is causing the confusion is I'm in Canberra, sitting here (upside down?) when I look at the screen the back row, counting in three from the right, I maintain it looks to me like Harry E, I may be wrong but thats how I view it.

Hi all you Ozzies,
I turned my monitor upside down, took up a Yogi position doing a headstand, (Kama Sutra position No.156) but that didn't work either, all that happened is the blood rushed to my head and I passed out.

Where is everybody?...I bet you are all checking your Kama Sutra manuals.
