The gentleman standing between Mari Webber and Phil Irving is of course, Brian Harding. He was the VOC Secretary from December 1972 until February 1978, this was at the time of the formation of the VOC Spares Co Ltd. and he was very involved with that.
Brian died in a road traffic accident while riding his BMW, those of us that had the honour to know him lost a good friend that day, he was a lovely man.

1974 Isle of Man Rally

As I have now removed this photo, I thought I'd attach it to this thread.

Taken at the 1974 Isle of Man Rally. Front Row: Paul Richardson, Tony Lloyd, Mari Webber, Brian Harding (ex-Hon. Secretary), Phil Irving, Colin Jenner, John Webber, Bill Hancock and Doug Poulter.
The haircut behind Tony Lloyd is John Waltham, and Len Matthews is behind Phil Irving.
