Thank you Simon, its my father on the bike. It was his stories about that bike which inspired me to buy a Comet, I found the photo with the clear registration number today whilst going through old photos. I do hope the current owner responds.

I now have DCP911 my brother Alan bought in the '70's from Chris Target (he had won a Club concours with it) it was in the Portsmouth/Southampton area. It was in Alan's garage unused for some 30 years. I now have the task of restoring it.

My father Peter Robertshaw is in the picture, I remember seeing the same or similar leg shields in my grandad's cellar in the early 70's.The bike was bought from a dealer in Sowerby Bridge [near Halifax] by my dad's mate Ronnie Tomlinson who generously allowed my father to use it whilst he was at sea with the merchant navy.
