This site would not be possible without significant contribution over the past few years from a very large number of individuals and organisations, not only for supplying information, but also for granting permission for use of material and images.

We wish to acknowledge and sincerely thank everyone concerned. In listing individuals, there is always the danger of missing someone out. If this should happen it is entirely inadvertent. Please accept our apologies, inform us at once and we will remedy the matter as soon as possible.

While every effort has been made to seek and obtain the permission of relevant parties for the use of material, in a very few cases this has not been achieved due to out of date contact details, insufficient source information or lack of response. Some of the material is deemed to be in the public domain with copyright already expired. Again, please contact us at once if there is an issue.

Some of the material will be added at a later date but we would like to acknowledge those people whose contributions have yet to appear.
