Can you help us name these (un)known soldiers?

Just in time for Remembrance Day — Can you help us identify these soldiers?

The first photo is the cover image from Christopher Morry’s new book — When the Great Red Dawn is Shining: Howard Morry’s Memoirs of Life in the Newfoundland Regiment — 11 Platoon, C Company, RNR (photo generously provided by The Provincial Archives of Newfoundland and Labrador (PANL F-4-81).

The second photo is that same group of veterans — minus one — at the Platoon’s 39th Reunion in 1954. Can you help us match the names on the reunion photo to the faces on the original photo?
