The last one, NWA1039 is a photo of the Maple Leaf Quartet, (the "Harmony Quartet" as they were called to avoid tipping the Japanese that there were Canadians about). The caption includes the names of the four who were: Cpl Maynard Taylor, L/Cpl George Brown, Sigmn Ted Loney and Sigmn Jean Paul Trottier.
It should be noted that this quartet was in much demand in and around Darwin and "appeared" several times on the local radio station, "5DR".
