The Lad on the front row 3rd from left is my Dad Brian Chapman.
The list of names are very familiar to me as Dad always talked about his great pals from them days.
Never knew this & the other Spring view photo existed so many thanks for posting them as we lost Dad September 2011 so photo's like the become even more precious .
(Tommy Carr on front row is actually Tommy Parr).
