    Hi Henk
    Harbottle,25,registered at Newcastle on Tyne ,Northumberland
    CWGC doesn't give an age for Frederick W Rogers but his Service No shows him to have been an Aircraft Apprentice entering in 1926.There is a Frederick W Rogers registered at Bristol with an age of 58, rather old, even for a 1926 ex Apprentice, but not impossible
    I couldn't find White-Saunders.
    Regards
    Dick
