Chailey Mill 1932

Here's an interesting photo taken in front of Chailey Mill in 1932. That's the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII wearing the straw boater, but who is the man he's speaking to, and who are the other veterans?
Tom Cornford MM, his head slightly bowed, is the veteran standing in the front row directly under the flag of St George (and indicated by the arrow), but who are the other men? The mill had been damaged in a storm either the previous year or shortly before that, hence the reason it has no sails.
