Camouflage Crew!

We just received this photo as a result of another article appearing on our website.  It's a little difficult to make out just who is in it due to the fact that they blend so well into the background!  But we would like to know who are they, what are they doing, and when and where was it taken?

 

ERT Training Exercise on Paget Island in 1990's
Top Row (l-r)   Glyn Jones, Craig Morfitt, Ian Ringrose, Paul Moss,
Keith Senior, Mark Asprey, Stuart Kirkpatrick, Ian Coyles
Front Row  -  John Jones, Val Holder, Steve Nurse, Frankie "Bill" Foggo, and Greg Hopkins
(Photographer  -  Russ Matthews)

13th April 2014

We seem to be making some progress after receiving emails from both Val Holder and Steve Nurse earlier today as follows:-

From Val Holder

Hi Roger,

That was an ERT training Day back in 199_ on Paget Island.
Back row left to right: Glynn Jones, Craig Morfitt, Ian Ringrose, ??, Keith Senior, Peter Morgan, Stuart Kirkpatrick, Ian
Front row left to right: John Jones, yours truly Val Holder, Steve Nurse, Frankie Foggo,  Greg Hopkins

Val Holder

From Steve Nurse  

Back row Glen Jones,  Craig Morfitt, Ian Ringrose, ??,  Keith Senior, Mark Asperby, Ian Coyles
Front Row ??, Val Holder, Steve Nurse, Bill Foggo, Greg Hopkins.
 
Editors note  -   We are now fairly sure that we have all the names correctly, and that this was taken at an ERT training exercise on Paget Island, but can we be a little more specific about the date?

I count thirteen names but there are fourteen in the photo. As I know only a couple of the members, I can't help to identify who's name is missing. Sorry.

4th Left in top row is Paul Moss. Everyone else is correct.
Back row left to right: Glynn Jones, Craig Morfitt, Ian Ringrose, Paul Moss, Keith Senior, Peter Morgan, Stuart Kirkpatrick, Ian Coyles

Front row left to right: John Jones, Val Holder, Steve Nurse, Frankie Foggo, Greg Hopkins
I took the photograph.

Editors note - Many thanks Russ. That's what I call a definitive answer! One last question. Wiuld you have any idea what year it was taken? In another post Dave O'Meara points out that Greg Hopkins left the BPS in 1993 so it must have been before then.

And, slightly off-cue, enter Davie!
No guarantee that all these are correct, but, to the best of my knowledge and belief, back row from L:- Glyn Jones, don't know, Ian Ringrose, Russ Matthews, Keith Senior, Mark Aspery, Pete Morgan, don't know, Geordie Coyles. Front row from L:- John Jones, Val Holder, Steve Nurse, Sir William of Foggo, Greg Hopkins.
I note that Dave O has ID'd my two "don't knows" as Craig Morfitt and Stuart Kirkpatrick respectively. These ID's may well be correct, but I'd never have got them off this photo!

Quoting Terry:
Ask Bill Foggo and Keith Senior.

Editors note - Are you suggesting that "Bill" and Keith are in the photo?

Well that was part of my tactic.
And yes they are.
As for Ian Coyles, that was even easier to answer because he was such a good cop and I respected him much along with others.
Just me being myself Roger.
Now we just have to await Davie.
Shalom.
