The identifiable figures are thought to be as follows:
Back row (stood left to right):
1. Benjamin Arthur Wightman (1873 - 1937), eldest son of Arthur Wightman (1842 - 1924);
2. Mr Harland possibly possibly Charles Cecil Harland (1888 - 1946) one of the sons of the Rev. Albert A. Harland (1839 - 1921), vicar of Harefield, Middlesex.
