Name that jammer, anyone?

Wondering if you can help us with this. I recently bought a
well-thumbed second hand book on Nelson’s Pillar. Opening second hand books you never know what will fall out, but this was a surprise.

A great picture of three kids on top of the Pillar in ’59, along with their first names and a rather rare view – the viewing platform itself.

I’m curious to know where they are today? Are they Dubs or visitors? Whoever wrote the details in pen called it ‘Nelson’s Column’, very unusual here and making me suspect they may be English visitors?
