I have shown the names and titles as shown on the plinth. I.T.R.DAVIDSON for example was later shown as I.DAVIDSON. Mercer and Furness have appeared at different stages of their careers. In 1959 G.D.Mercer won on what was probably his first appearance. He did not win again until 1990 but after being appointed as a Circuit Judge he won in consecutive years in 1993 and 1994. Ian Davidson was QC and went on to become a Circuit Judge but his rank did not appear on the plinth.
