The peat workers have been named as Donald Peace Snr in the donkey cart, Standing L to R, W Logie, Andrew Cooper, James Rendall Jnr, , Donald Peace Jnr, B Park, James Rendall Snr. Front row L to R George Rendall, John Millan, Stewart Peace, John Rendall. I am way out with the date as I have been told that John Millan volunteered near the end of WW1 and died of poisoning in 1918 aged 17, so I guess the picture would be from a year or two before that
