The third man is Harry Lime surely ?, with Orson Welles playing the lead rôle......... I'm convinced these guys are still waiting for that train to arrive from Warrington Central. Wouldn't you have thought that someone would have put them in the picture before now ?.........Sorry Lol.............( or am I ?)

The 3rd bloke is Dave Tommo asking for a margin to shove a 60ft rail up to Martland mill on scooters with only 2 men...
