    Any ideas as to who the other blokes are? The pic was taken at Walthamstow, London in 1946. Some of the faces look very familiar but then we've all said that before haven't we?? :D.............

    All the best...........:)

    A very good question.
    I've found the names of some of the men who took part in the various books I've got, but I've never seen a definitive list.......

    I don't think so mate. The army number of the guy in the "Walthamstow" pic is 6344345.

    Thanks Paul,

    On another note, has anyone put names to the Sgts mess pic from after Arnhem taken at Ashwell camp Leicestershire? A lot of them would be replacements from all over the British Army however there must be some original 2 Para or even men from other Battalions in the mix?

    I can definitely see a close resemblance in the lip area as Dave says almost a family trait, Brother? but not convinced its the same guy......... eyes look sharper in the second pic and to me nose looks different although the angle is not the same.
