I believe the two gentlemen (?) pictured are Ben Down and Dave Barr. Anyone confirm?
Cheers

   Good one Dave. I had heard about the Gib NAAFI club, but never saw it. The pictures are not stokers.
 The first visit  Cath and I went to Gib, we were there for a week, there did seem to be some army and RAF people about. We were out in a small boat, suppose to be looking for dolphins (or something), when a Vulcan bomber took off over our heads. It was a very noisy experience, and the "spiv" who promised to show us the whales and dolphins which we never saw, explained that the bomber scared all the wild life away.  Didn't get a refund either. We did get to the top of the rock however, we went up in dangling basket affair, Cath did not like it at all, and was insisting on going down by road in a taxi. Unfortunatly, there was taxi strike on so she had to go down in the basket, but was not at all happy !!
  Still worth a visit. Keep Gib British.
