12-1-43 and I still haven't seen a barber."

[My father is front second left.
There are no names given but I assume that the
other three are 459 Squadron officers.
Interesting that none seem to be wearing their rank insignia, possibly because they are in an OR's bar -
see the Sergeant sitting at rear left.]
