I have a photo of 3 persons, Ralph Nevill and George Poi Poi (New Zealand name?) Both Lost at Sea in Oct 1940 and another Male Robert Cassidy, (on the same Stone) lost at Sea on 1st July 1971, his wife was Florence..I do not know were this memorial stone was taken, or who took it. My father may have taken a random photo, as he always had his camera with him.
Thank you
