Laurie Riglin wonders how many readers recognise themselves or relatives in this picture taken in 1959.

Laurie, of Southwood Road, Hilsea, Portsmouth, is standing on the extreme right beside the front row. It shows 577 Squadron Royal Engineers (TA) during the annual camp at Western Command Bridging Camp at Halton, Lancashire.

Laurie says the squadron was based at Burnaby Road, Portsmouth, now HMS Temeraire.
