Christmas about 1946

This photo turned up in John Blomfield’s effects and was kindly leant by Anna Blomfield.

It’s clearly a Christmas party. Was this the old reading room? The cleric on the left has been identified as William George Dean-Pitt Mercer by Chris and Terry Hawkes. They also recognised some others here, but I lost the notes! Sorry. I’ll have to try again. Click the picture for a much bigger version.
