Handcross Girl Guides in camp (1 of 4)

The only information attached to this photograph in that it shows the Handcross Girl Guides in camp. The location is not known and the date has been estimated.
Just one male has decided to join the tea party and I am fairly certain that it is Bill Robinson who, with his brother, Bert, had a shop in the High Street. (See picture #438)
On the right with the dark-coloured jacket is, I believe, Winnifred Faulkner, later to be better known as Mrs Win Greenfield (1906-1994). (See picture #444)
Please can anyone add more names or comments?

This picture is in the following groups
Girl Guides and Brownies
In the front, second from the right is my mother, Rosina Rapley, latterly Wilkinson.
I would think that this is slightly later than 1925, maybe 1927 or 1928. I say this as my grandfather, Will Rapley, took up employment as head gamekeeper for Col. Warren in 1927. He received 15 shillings a week plus Orchard cottage, now No.1 Hoadlands. and work clothes.
(Thanks, Robin, I have adjusted the date, Barry)
