Olivia O'Dolan confirms (April 2007) :
"
I think that Fr Brendan Shannon  is the 3rd from left at front.

Jan
kindly supplied most of the names in this photo—
not an easy job after all these years —but thinks that he has
forgotten one or two German students. I am not able to interpret Jan's
list correctly, and would appreciate your help to put names to faces (and vice versa).
