The 1943 crew left to right---Stan Winter, Harold Moore, Bill Harvey, Steve Holden (my uncle), Dick Sayer, Len Piddlestone (Coxwain), Dick Lower, Bob Holden (my father and Head Launcher),???, Frank Vacher, and Fred Parker.

The 1946 Sunday morning photo back row left to right,???, ???, my dad Bob Holden, Dick Sayer. Front row, ???, ???, Fred Parker, Dick Lower, and his son Bob. Sunday was always a spit polish and natter day, something that I was always involved in from a very young age.

From my family records (newspaper cuttings), I believe unnamed crew member is acting assistant motor mechanic J Eager.

Colin, I am Stephen Holden's Grandson, (my Father is Keith Holden, Stephen's Son) I was wondering if you had any other Photos of Stephen other than the ones on here, as he passed away before I was born, I would love to see any you had

I can confirm that the unnamed man is Jim Eager (Alfred James Eager) as he was my Granddad.
