Rear rank (l-r): Lt Lloyd; Eddie Lennon; 'Yanto' Evans; n/k; Baker (kia Hill 170 - see note below)
Front rank (l-r): n/k; Charles Ellis RA; Fred Jenkins; Les Dunnet; 'Chai Wallah'
nb. There were two from No.1 Commando with the surname of Baker who were killed on the 31/1/45. They were L/Cpl Herbert Baker and Gnr. George Baker. As the man in this picture has a stripe on his right arm, I believe he will be L/Cpl Herbert Baker
nb. 'Yanto' Evans looks similar to a picture we have of a Sgt. Sydney Evans of 1 Cdo
