Correction 2: Rear row 2nd from end on right hand of photo I believe to be Ron McLean (Lofty) so sorry, I don't know my left from right which won't do for a Commandos daughter!

Top row 1st man on right is Jack Rawlinson, 2nd Stan? Buckmaster
Top row 2nd from end on left I think is Ron McLean (Lofty)
Sorry I'm doing this from very early childhood memories and they were all a bit older when I really knew them too!

4th row 4 along is my 'uncle' Stan (ding-dong) Bell who I loved to bits - he had a guest house in Blackpool and when I was really small, an ice-cream van and a boxer dog called Kim - we used to visit regularly from London but he passed in the summer of 77 a few months before my mum Pauline :(
5th row 2nd man is my dad Jack Rawlinson!

That's my dad Jack Rawlinson - end of back row on right hand side! I think the man with the pipe and No.2 sign was my mum's old boss Henry Brown and 2 along from him to the right I think is Ron (Lofty) McLean - he was about 6' 7" and also had a daughter called Helen and another Ann I think!

man on the left
the man on the left of the picture is indeed a man known as his nickname "spud " he was also known as my father Horace Taylor , in the picture of course he was corporal Taylor ,for many years he spoke of his dear friend "Fitz" and I can only say what a delight it is to see this wonderful picture of them both.
