    As these Stars are from a period of 30 years a seating arrangement has not been attempted, but most of the leading lights are seated.
    Who is P. Gunaratne? Between Jayantha S. and K.M.Nelson may not be Ranjan Gunatilleka.
    Those missing are abroad — Fitzroy Crozier, Sarath Wimalaratne A,E.( Annesley) de Silva and Malcolm Franke. Not sure about the whereabouts of the latter two
