The Webmaster would like to obtain a scan of an original print of this photograph, if one still exists, for inclusion within this site.  The image above and the higher definition version are taken from a printed image and are thus of low quality.  Also the identity of those appearing is sought: only a few of the men have so far been identified.  Yet almost every single man will have been mentioned within this site. BUT WHO IS WHO? PLEASE HELP - if you can, please go to
