Whistlebinkies and other musicians play in the occupied ITT Controls McLaren Division factory in Kilbirnie Street, Glasgow, 19.12.1973. Mick Broderick stands first right, Eddie McGuire (on flute) sits below with Gordon Hotchkiss (on concertina) on his right. John Morrison, the shop steward, is in the centre holding up the dismissal notices, surrounded by the rest of the workforce. The occupation developed from a strike for equal pay. Can anyone supply the names of the other musicians?
