Who was at the Monotype Room’s Christmas Party, 1966?

Capture

The Monotype Operators and Casting Attendants pictured really loved having their old style Christmas Piss-Ups at King William Road.
Sitting (L to R): Bill Wallace, Burk Stone, Bert Tinkler, John Bryant.
Standing (L to R): Ralph Hannant, Kevin McBride, Peter Reeve, Ted Burkett, Graham Braybrook, Alex Crawford, Neil Cross, Cecil Dodd, Hector Korsten.
Hidden: David Copley (drummer but always working overtime).
But one person on the day, and that’s a young John ‘Mooster’ Bryant looks very sour and unhappy.
If you look closely at the back wall there is a poster hanging there that you would not see today.
A big thank you to Steve Palmer for putting names to the faces and to Dave Copley for suggesting an accurate year change.
