It would take  someone of the age of 55-plus to remember this scene along Commercial Road at the junction of Church Street.

NOSTALGIA: A Portsmouth scene unrecognisable today: Commercial Road in its pomp

Have your say

Joyce Taylor has managed to put some names to the faces of these gas board drivers from the Portsmouth area.

She first submitted this picture in February and at the time the only one she knew was her late husband Ern, who is first on the left in the front row.

Now a friend of hers, Terry Harwell, has suggested that some of the other chaps are: Les Shawyer, Alf Tupper, Bert Loder, Don Williams and Les Grace.

Can anyone identify the remaining five?

Please drop me a line and let me know.
