    "Sir Emsley Carr shaking hands with Fred Daly" - we must certainly hope this isn't the case, as Sir Emsley had died 6 years earlier!

    (Later reference to James Braid talking with Sir Emsley also needs adjusting.)

    "Ward" is Charlie Ward.

    There was no team member called "Green", so I don't know who that would be.

    "Faulkner" is Max Faulkner.

    There was no team member called "Horn", so again I don't know who that might be.

    I wonder if the man currently credited as being the late Sir Emsley Carr is in fact William Carr, who was involved with the News of the World, becoming their Chairman in the 1950s?

    Okay - a lot here that could be wrong.

    So can anyone identify "Sir Emsley Carr", "Green" and "Horn"?
