Children who aren't in the photo:
- George Cautherley checked the photo and says he isn't in it.
The original is held at the Imperial War Museum (IWM), their ref: A30550:
Little Children internees at Stanley Internment Camp joyfully greet the first contingents of the Royal Navy. Although undernourished and showing signs of the ordeal of existence under the Japanese, these children were remarkably fit. Everyone in the camp had contributed to keep the children healthy. Baby Gerald Ward, 13 months old and born in the camp, is in the front of the group.
The photo was taken on 31st August 1945 (see Tony Banham's comment below). The IWM caption just says "AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 1945."
