Re X07
I think the tall man in the middle is Joe Long and the lad at the end front right is Albert Tate which would date it to around 1936.

Re I287
The man on the right front is Alfred luty who died recently aged 92, the man behind him is Alan Leech and the man on the left just peeping looks like Derek Norris. The man left front, looks like Alan Maude.
