The Breakthrough

This photograph was taken on the day when the tunnel breakthrough was made. Our ongoing research has managed to identify many of the men in the picture but we still need your help to identify the others.

By moving your mouse over each man's face, a name will appear in the box below the picture. Can you spot the two Davey brothers? If you are able to put a name to any of the unknown men we'd be delighted to hear from you.
