    Rear rank on right looks like Pat Green.
    Thought the LT may be Icky Biggs, but not sure.

    As a side comment. Remember Geoff Drew well. He was part of staff iof HMS Glasgow when we were in West Indies circa 1949/1950, He left to come home for discharge in Pompey and made a few jocular remarks as he departed. A few months later we arrived back in Pompey and who should greet us but Geoff who had been retained due to the Korean war for another 18 months. Surprise surprise he was one of the first people I saw on arriving in NZ back in 1958.
