Beaters from the Hyde Estate, Handcross

Beaters on the Hyde shoot are relaxing in this photograph taken, from a glance at the trees in the background, soon after the Great Storm of 1987.
In the centre at the back, resting on his left elbow is Andrew “Yogi” Turville, in the middle of the three in the front row is Percy Bailey, behind Percy with his beating stick is Geoff Beet, and on the extreme right is Sid Biggs.
Please can anyone name others?

From memory, Yogi loved the Hyde beaters Christmas parties or other functions. I know so because I heard him say so.
