Hi John!  Eddie Hobbs at the pressure gauge, Mike Southcott at the controls, Tanni Visaranta further along and then someone I cannot remember the name of. I'm not sure if he might of been a contract electrician?

Ed:  I think you are correct.  It's good that someone can remember all the names!  John B
