Past Perfect into Past?


Is this correct, or should it be "these two had appeared"....? Is this a rule, or just a matter of style?


Carlo’s son had only sent a few photographs from Afghanistan, but these two appeared in almost all of them.



For clarity 'these two' are two soldiers being introduced into the story. The paragraph makes it clear who 'these two' are.
