Looks like BOL or BOU.

 

Bolton or Bournemouth,though Bournemouth wouldn't fit if the size of the BO was maintained for the whole name.

Note the Bata shoe shop on the right, orignally Czech made then made in England, we didn't have Bata shoe shops in London. Bata shoe factory was in East Tilbury, Essex.

If they're West Ham supporters it could also be the BOL of Boleyn.

For comparison purposes 

 

The differences between NIPB and BCH were that NIPB was basically an extended version of the DMS and had a softer leather shaft than the cardboardy shaft of the BCH.  

Also the BCH didn't have a toecap or the low heel section and a had much less rounded toe shape  than the DMS/NIPB

Another difference is the grip.The BCH had the new style grip, whereas the NIPB had the standard DMS grip.

The 3 with the short strides on - that's 4th June 1974 in Belfast.

I've got a pair of Jaytex ruperts in a similar but smaller check to the ones in that '73 pic - straight leg sta press, 17 inch bottoms.

Sprayed up Martens - popular early 70s footy attire when ye boots were no longer fashionable - spray them silver, have a scrap, all the paint falls off, spray them gold for next week - great.
