Chris Campbell writes: "This may be Fr Drost may be on the left. If so, the picture would have been taken in the early 1950s at the latest. It was Fr. Drost who first told me about the White Fathers when I used to visit him in Kingussie Sanatorium in the mid 1950s".
And Ken Miller writes to say that it is Fr Dan Sherry on the right :

"Having grown up in Northern Rhodesia (Zambia) from 1947 to 1964, my family became friends with many White Fathers. We first met White Fathers when we lived in Kasama, where my Dad was the local Prison Officer and through the chaplaincy work of the Fathers our family became good friends with many of them.

Fr Dan Sherry and Fr Hugh Bonar, two Scottish fathers became exceptional good friends with my family who also hailed from Scotland. It was wonderful to look through your Gallery and what
a surprise when the second picture I saw included Fr Dan Sherry . . .
As a good Scottish Episcopalian boy with a Church of Scotland Father, I have many fond memories of the Fathers and visiting their missions, and if you wish I would be happy to share them with the friends of the Pelicans. I am living in Ottawa Canada, and there was a House here up until the seventies.

All that remains is a street named White Fathers Road."

Note the winklepickers - which wouldn't have been allowed in our day, of course.

(Which "our day" was this, then?)
