Hi Wrock....... scratch who are you? I was Mortar plt from 66 to 72 probably during the time the pic was taken - besides those already named - Rear rank 5th from left Mitch Mitcham, Centre rank 2nd from left John Cary (there is a website run by John about 3 Para sigs but there has been nothing new for a long long time)

In the rear rank 3rd from the left is Sid Smelly, on Sid's right I know it's not spelt right but his name is pronounced Bobchick, and I think thats Mick Gascoine in the centre. Middle rank 3 to the left of Johnny Wilson is Dick Usher and next to him Alan Gough, next to Franky Havlin Scouse?? good footballer. On the right of the front row is Hammy Hamilton the REME tech. That might be Jimmy Johnson next to Johnny Wilson. Thats Danny Calvert on Sid Smelly's left.
