Then this information grows and grows.

Remember, Barry first started with this comment.

Good morning Pierre

I continue to enjoy your blog. Just to identify my father John J. Acorn as being the fourth from the left in the top back row. In the picture Prisoners returning home to Canada. I will be sending you some material within a few days.

Thanks so much for your work on this blog I too can understand some of the hardships that these brave men have experienced in sailing the Oceans of the world during my career as a Master Mariner for 35+ years.

The caption is unclear, but I believe it should be left to right 3rd row #3.
