Coastguards and Lifeboat Crew on Hoy

I think this was a doo; to say goodbye to Commander Erol Bruce before he left Lyness Naval Base; please correct me if I am wrong I am very good at being wrong!!
Some of the people are still around but sadly most are no longer with us.
This time I do know most of them but thought it is an interesting photo.
Do feel free to name them if you have enough space.

These informal photographs are so interesting, particularly when viewed using the enlarged version, folks expressions, clothing and the decor gives me a real sense of the period .
