Dr G C MacDiarmid (left) from Hamilton, New Zealand, and Mr C Lee (right), Fourth Engineer from Cape Town, South Africa, play a game of billiards in the dining room of the Merchant Navy Hotel in Bedford Square, London. The original caption states that Dr MacDiarmid "has just been repatriated from Germany, where he was a prisoner of war for nearly four years". Mr Lee served in the Royal Navy for two years before joining the Merchant Navy and was a survivor of a cruiser which was sunk at Crete.
