Looks like Capt John Tulloch who was probably relieving as Mate at that time and the late Ally Clouston driving the winch. Car is Triumph 2.5Pi or 2000 Mk 2

It's a 2.5PI - you can tell by the wheel trims and the badge on the rear pillar.

Yep, its a PI. Dad had a thing about Triumphs. He had 2 PIs, 2 Staggs, and a Herald. (not all at the same time)
We went to Orkney in one of the Staggs. 2 adults, 2 children, a load of scuba gear (including tanks) and all the luggage for a 2 week holiday. On one trip back in the PI the windshield shattered somewhere north of Inverness in a blizzard. Long drive in the snow to the nearest garage. The next PI gave us a thrill on the way home too. Throttle cable snapped, again in the snow. Dad mended it by using his belt to make a hand throttle. Snow was so bad it was hard to see 2 feet ahead, but we made it home. Our trips to Orkney were always "interesting"
