That photo was taken before you were born. I checked where the photo came from and its a family photo. My uncle Stan Hanwell is on it and he is 6th from left back row.
I think he was born in 1924, and he became a Navigator in the RAF in WW2.He flew in Lancaster Bombers and never talked about his experiences apart from he told my sister he'd bombed the 'Eagles Nest'. His wife my aunt Cecilia told me not long before he died in 2009 that he often had nightmares. One nightmare was he thought he was falling.
