The photo is well titled.

The Bosum and the Lamptrimmer are the two faces I recognise.

Great photo~ Hugh ~ sorry was not on Cedric so dont know any of these guys ~ but just wish more crew would post photos of themselves at parties in crew mess or pig 'n whistle on the passenger liners. I worked immigrant liners but we had great parties and few photos in those days ~ but there must be lots of photos in personal archives which could be uploaded here. The good old days on the ships ~ best days of my life!!

I remember the bosun as being a big guy, I was a new EDH then, only a teenager.

You are right he was a big guy, the lampy I remember was Percy he ended up with a good position in Australian customs, Nickolaidis was the chief steward.
