Bob Edwards thinks this picture was taken at a mess Christmas dinner in either 1958 or 1959.

It shows men of 577 Squadron Royal Engineers (TA) at the Burnaby Road territorial centre in Portsmouth.

Bob, of Berkshire Close, Fratton, is second from the right with Laurie Riglin on the far right, but can you put names to the others?

Bob said: ‘I remember summer camps at Halton, Lancashire, and Barnstable very well. In fact, it while at Halton that I had my first, and only, brush with the law, riding pillion on a motorcycle on the Preston by-pass. I think I was fined £2.’
