Well second from left back row is definitely me Sgt Eddie Bell, George Ledger to my right was a sergeant at the time, to my left is I believe Sgt John Bartlett, and to the right of George Ledger is Sean McCarroll. I remember the photo being taken, and indeed that it was for a special occasion, not just a random event but can't remember why. It must have been a special occasion- I was wearing my hat!
