Proof readers Past and Present
We would like to say a big thank you to the following people, who, in their spare time have kindly proof read the material you see on Britain's Small Wars.
This is a totally non profit making web site. All the images on this web site were found on the internet and other sources. Where possible we have tried to seek out the copyright owner of the images for permission to use the images on the site. Any use of copyright material is UN-INTENTIONAL and will be removed if required.
Recently our attention has been drawn to a series of new books, articles and radio and television documentaries on the subjects covered by Britain's Small Wars. Their contents, in many cases, draw extensively on material published on this web site and used without acknowledgment or permission of the copyright holders.
When this site was created and developed, its aim, which remains, was to record those conflicts since 1945 in which British service personnel have been called upon to do their duty, reported as far as possible through the eye-witness accounts of those involved, and to create Honour Rolls, where none existed before, of those who gave their lives in service to their country.
As a result this web site has become a valuable historical resource due to the voluntary efforts of our contributors, free from the profit-making needs of media publishers.
By using Britain's Small Wars copyright material without permission, some authors and publishers are not only taking credit falsely for their work, they are dishonoring British forces and their achievements.
While we do not have the resources to 'police' the use of our material nor pursue costly litigation, we usually give permission freely to those who approach us to quote passages from our pages for their use. In fact, they honor us by doing so. All we request is that they acknowledge the fact in their published work.
