The photo above kindly sent in by Alf Evans shows the lads posing with an astonishing number of tonnage, and as Alf queries

" I wonder who managed to come up with that number 888888  ?????????".

Can anyone tell me the year, and also name the men on the photo above if you can please send me the details.

Many thanks for the photo Alf.
