John MacPherson far left, Mike Luff far right, I think I've seen this before so I presume it's in the box of dozens of Harry snaps that my dad ended up with as well. You can't put a date to it as well?

Can't say I do but the boiler suit seems have an ICI logo on it so that narrows it down to a few tens of thousands. IP: 146.200.44.201

The guy with the ICI logo on his boiler suit is the late John McNeil.
He seemed to derive some pleasure at using this 'Named Company boiler suit'
The guy with the glasses, as the guy on the right,of him has correctly surmised is a keen photographer.
It is Dave Sargent.
I remember on one occasion, that the man on the far right of the photo, being described by an Alston police officer as "Brummy Buggar'!

So that's him, I remember him being there, vaguely, but could not remember what he looked like.

Been along time.
