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.
