BEA Pilot - name?

A long shot, and not a great photo.

Can anybody put a name to this BEA Viscount pilot, about 1960?

A quick and unexpected response! Thank you.


Can you remember Foggy's real name?

I think you’re thinking of Dusty Rhodes, Dusty Miller was a friend of Chalky White.

Which reminds me of once being introduced to a chap called Donkey. It took me a while. I assumed that he was well-endowed until I discovered that his surname was Khoti (or something similar).
