If the photo was taken on the final return from Norway, both men were likely killed that same day. Your Father in Law took the photo ? He must have been one of the lucky few who survived.

Also: where in/on Glorious could the photo have been taken? From the photos of her, it looks like she had wire life-lines rather than solid bulwarks on all her weather decks.

They could be RAF. I expect you know about this website dedicated to Glorious, Ardent and Acasta, but here's the link for anyone interested in finding out more about the tragic event...

All those who were lost and the survivors are listed and there are also photographs.

 Flying as Leader of B Flight, 41 Sqn, on 15th August 1940, Pilot Officer Ted Shipman and the rest of his flight found themselves among a mass of Messerschmitt Bf.110s that had been detailed to escort a bomber force of Heinkel He111s on a raid on the North of England.  Having made one head-on attack on one of the Bf.110s, Shipman manoeuvred his Spitfire Mk.1 onto the tail of another and fired a long burst into it.  This was M8+CH of Oberleutnant Hans-Ulrich Kettling of 1./ZG76 and rear Gunner / Radio Operator O/ Gefr Volk, whose starboard engine burst into flames and disappeared into the dense cloudbase.  Shipman claimed this initially as a probable, but it was later confirmed as a victory when the aircraft was found to have crash landed at Streatham Nr Barnard Castle.  Spitfire K9805 (EB-L) is depicted breaking off the attack as Kettling's stricken Bf.110 begins to burn.  Ted Shipman would go on to serve with the Royal Air Force until December 1959 retiring as a Wing Commander.  Ted would also go onto become friends with  Hans-Ulrich Kettling, the pilot he shot down.
