  • Hi John! Person up on top of the pump and motor platform is Phil Marshall. Electrician on right side of platform is Roger Goode. Just below Roger is John Knight. Man on main ram crosshead? Other person on left on platform?   Chippy Aston.

  • Hi John, I think the fellow working on the container in the front looks like Ray Gardner and the fitter behind the end housing looks like Ivor Dyer? Both were “detail” fitters as I remember when I  was an apprentice 69 -74.

  • Hi Pete!    You are correct in the identification of the people.  Speedy response! We hope you are enjoying viewing the site. Ivor will crop up again when I have sorted another batch of photos. Hopefully others may be able to identify the remaining people in the photo.   John B
