We received the following two photographs which were taken at a Christmas Gathering and we were asking if you could tell us exactly where it was taken, what year was it, and who are in both of these photos?  The answers came thick and fast, and we are indebted to Orson Daisley for sending the photos to us.  It was, of course, a Christmas Dinner in the St. George's Police Mess (the building no longer exists) in either  1966 or 1967.  Their names are listed below the photos.  Sadly,  no less than 4 of those gathered are no longer with us  -  Alan Proctor, Walter Somers, John Instone, and John "Rigor" Morris.  Gone but not forgotten.
