ID of Race photo, 1967 GP

I'm trying to ID the riders in this photo. I believe it's the start of a 250cc GP race at Cadwell Park, GB in 1967. Mike Hailwood on a Honda 6 is certainly #35 and I think Rod Gould on a Bultaco is #33. But who are the others? Fellow pushing on far left has a helmet with a map of Australia & a kangaroo on it. Number 6 has a helmet with something like a cartoonish eye, and number 65 has what might be a shamrock and stripes. Any suggestions from Vintage GP fans?
Check out the photo below or you can see a much larger copy at http://www.pinterest.com/pin/424464333604480834/ . (Just click on tho photo to enlarge)

65 looks to be Tommy Robb.
Jack Findlay ran just a kangaroo on the front of his helmet. Usually a light blue in color. But not on top of a shadow of Australia.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

Sorry mate, can't help with that. There was a heap of Aussies racing over there through the 50s and 60s. See. http://www.circuslifebook.com. .

A lot of them never came home...

Cadwell sept 1967 - starting lineup?

Here's a thought - the race was probably at Cadwell, GB, in September,1967 - anyone have a copy they could look thru ? It would have the names and starting numbers of all the riders.
