ejwalshe,

 

Agreed; it does bring the event to life.  My one concern is that though you have acknowledged the source of these IWM images you may need to seek permission from the IWM to reproduce them here or on Youtube. 

 

Regards

 

Colin

Thanks, Colin for the concern, but I do abide by the restrictions set forth by the IWM to reproduce these images (very few do so, particularly on Z's program). 

 

And, I do not need to seek permission from the Imperial War Museum to use these images, since I have cited them as per their instructions.

 

Cheers.

ej,

 

I am happy to be proved wrong in this case and apologise for any inconvenience.  I was not aware of the IWM non commercial licencing policy which does allow these to be used without permission being sought; linked here for any others who are interested - https://www.iwm.org.uk/corporate/policies/privacy-copyright/licence

 

However, to be fully compliant with their licence it state that 'where possible' a link to the source material should be provided.

 

Kind regards

 

Colin

232 pipers and drummers, that must have been an impressive sound!
