The far right is Mike Luff. The centre looks like Dave Sergeant but not sure. John Mac with the ICI overalls?

No Les!

I know my dad even better (and longer) than you know the Luff'sWink, he's on the far left with a bag I really don't remember.

The guy with the ICI boiler suit is the one Roy is stuck for a name for, John had left them by 1976 but it's always possible it was someone he knew from Wilton.

Dave Sergeant in the middle. The ICI guy is familiar, but do not have name. IP: 31.185.152.54

I blame the confusion caused by two threads, the people are left to right;

John MacPherson (aka my dad), as yet anon in ICI boilersuit, Dave Sergeant (see younger version on Cambokeels pic) , Mr R Fellows and Mike Luff.

It also doesn't help when you have the potential for two John Mac's in the photo.
I hadn't recognised your father!

These old mine explorers and their cunning use of aliases, never trust them. I also have a Harry pic Dave Williams sent which may be from Clarghyll or Ayle coalmine perhaps of their coal sorting/grading if I put it on as a topic could you have a look Les?

Just amended the description with what we have so far. Trying to find an email address for the person I believe the unknown to be.

Thanks again Trogleman,

We eventually got there, not totally helped by having two threads running at the same time.

I thought that we had finished with this one, but the guys present are, from right to left.
John MacPherson, John McNeil, Dave Sargent, Roy the Walsall boy, and finally Mike Luff.
McNeil always wore an ICI boiler suit, I think that they were quite difficult to get, and as a GEC man, he liked to show off.

Sorry John,

I was a little imprecise, I meant that the John McNeil's name was on the other thread;

I blame 6 hours of working on the computer, reading students' answers to questions, leaves the brain a bit scrambledBlush
