Could I ask everyone to be a bit more careful about how they source their information and reproduce it on here please? If large chunks of text are taken from other websites, it would be nice if a link to the original article is included, or at the very least a mention of the author. I'm happy that people are spending time sourcing new topics, but having battled with other people who have lifted some of my original work on the Dover gun batteries and reproduced it as their own, it can leave me high and dry when I'm approached by someone regarding having their work appear on this forum without acknowledgement.
Wiki articles are acceptable if you are unable to cobble together some details, but please ensure that it's made clear that is where the information came from. I often use Wiki myself, especially if it's an article that I've already edited for them, but when I do then I try to remember to mention where the information came from.
Photographs can be a tricky issue too - I'm more than happy for scans of old postcards to appear, or copies of old photo's that you have obtained from sources other than the internet. And, of course, your own photographs taken in the course of your travels. But I would appreciate it if other people's photo's, on other websites, are left alone - it's hard for me to define what is OK and what isn't, but generally it should be apparent what can be used.
Thanking you all, and wishing you a fantastic New Year
