Full 56 Squadron, 1940-41, North Weald?

This is a fairly early picture of 56 Squadron either at the time of the Battle of Britain or just after. My father is in the back row and 'Taffy' Higginson is in the front row with 'RAF' moustache. If anyone can put names to any of the other pilots here i'd be very grateful.
