AudlemOnline recently published this photograph from an article by Dave Martin which appeared in Waterways World magazine in August 1966. There have been several chatbox suggestions and one or two e-mails to the editor to suggest who the man filling a petrol can with fuel at 4s 11d per gallon might be.

  • Gifford Langley thinks that it is Frank Allman on the pumps.
  • Mach One says that the sequence of pump attendants was Jack Williams, Frank Allman, Tom Sedgewick and then Nigel Hendley.
  • Stepanian agrees that the picture doesn't really resemble Tom Sedgewick.
  • Nicky says that it is definitely not Tom Sedgewick.
  • Nicky also says that her brother doesn't think it looks like Nigel Hendley or Frank Allman but might possibly be Trevor Williams
  • Billy Gibbons suggested Frank Allman (but not Mr Hendley who also worked there)
  • JillyT remembers that Tom Sedgwick was the man on the pumps some ten years after 1966.
  • In an e-mail message to the editor, Elizabeth Goldstraw says that her "hubby's" suggestion for the petrol pump attendant is Nigel Hendley.
