The bearded gentleman is James Charles Cutting, also known as Charlie or Chalkie. He was ferryman from the early years of the century till about 1931. Ron Caister from RH gave me this info. Ken Rook, also from RH, lent me pics of Chalkie. This is how I recognise him.

My father inlaw Jeffrey Caister thinks the man on the far left is a Robus but unsure of his first name

Could the older lady be a Gladwish? She looks very similar to a lady I have seen in a photo of my grandparents wedding taken in 1920.

Charlie Cutting is one of my ancestors. My maternal grandmother was a Cutting from Rye. She married George Dibley from Hastings (I think). My mother was born in Bognor Regis on 1st December 1928, shortly after the lifeboat disaster. Many of my ancestors were killed and are commemorated on the memorial. On the weekend of 18-19th September 2021 there is going to be a big meeting of "Dibley Descendants" in Rye.
