The ? Sinclair could be Edna [from the garage] and the ?? in the front row be David Flett [from the Hotel]. If David Flett is correct, the year can be 1954 at the earliest

Can anyone complete the missing names and also (alas) the deceased? It would be good to hear where you all are those days..........???

Hi Pat and Tommy, many thanks for your information which I am sure is correct. Pat, where is David those days?
If 1954 is correct we would have been about 13 when this picture was taken, does anyone have a later version?

Hello Ian, David Flett has lived in Brazil for about 30 years.
