Gav Lawrence from Australia says this the driver in the tied cloth 'headgear' is Gordon Porter.

Mick Peace says - I can confirm that it is Gordon Porter as the fireman looking over his shoulder is myself. As can be seen it was a very wet day. I was surprised to see it, because I have no pictures of me on steam at all. The only other one I know of is in Jim Evans book "From Booking Boy To Bulleids". I have told of how Gordon came to be on there before, but here goes again. I was booked with a toplink driver (can't remember his name), but he was leading off in the messroom about b***** trainspoters, so Gorden offered to change over, and to everyone's surprise the c/o was accepted. My regular mate at the time was Jim Evans, and he always claimed he should have had the job.
