Acknowledging Images We Use

Images form an important and integral part of our site. We pay special attention to them and frequently spend hours removing damage or otherwise enhancing them to improve their visual value.

We always respect the copyright holder of every image we use, where we can, and we actively seek the owner's permission to use such images. Of course, many will be from pre-1945 and will therefore be in the public domain, but even so, we ask permission as a common courtesy.

Many images we come across, or which are sent to us, are unattributed and those we include in our site are always on the basis that if the copyright owner contacts us we will always add their copyright if requested, and if asked to remove any, we will do so immediately.

Therefore, if you see an unacknowledged image on our site to which you claim copyright, please contact us so that we can put matters right.

And if you would like to make use of one of our images, please contact us before doing so as a courtesy. Where we add our Aircrew Remembered logo this is so readers can identify its source should someone reproduce it elsewhere without attribution.

If you have images you would like to share, please contact us via our Helpdesk. We have advanced software that can recover something from even the most damaged images. It is important that as many images as possible are published to complete the historical record, particularly if the names of individuals and the location can be specified. If you see an image on our site where you know additional details please let us know, using the AddInfo button or via our Helpdesk.


We have a set of images displaying on our homepage in random order so that when you revisit you are likely to see a different image from your first visit. The set currently in use will include some of the following. We are always interested in powerful or emotionally charged images for this purpose so please contribute if you have one or more.
