    Well spotted, Veg!
    Bleedin’ obvious when it’s pointed out.
    As said by Vince, some decent close ups would help..

    Wow. What an item !

    OK, here we go....one or two I can't make out, but there are : -

    Bill Townsend - Pilot, AJ-O on the Raid.
    Lance Howard - Navigator, AJ-O on the Raid.
    Dave Shannon - Pilot, AJ-L on the Raid
    Don MacLean - Navigator, AJ-T on the Raid.
    Jim Clay - Bomb Aimer, AJ-W on the Raid.
    Basil Feneron - Flight Engineer, AJ-F on the Raid
    Fred Tees - Rear Gunner and sole survivor of AJ-C on the Raid ( very rare signature ).

    Blow it up a bit, and the others should be easy to make out. It's worth a bit.....

    And a couple more...

    'Hobby' Hobday - Navigator, AJ-N on the Raid.
    Len Sumpter - Bomb Aimer, AJ-L on the Raid.

    Also, there's 'Johnnie' Johnson ; but there were two 'Johnnies' on the Raid ( in AJ-T and AJ-N ).
    In the WW2 RAF, everyone with the surname 'Johnson' was automatically nicknamed 'Johnnie'....
