Photographs may be forwarded as attachments to your e-mail. However,
please ensure that they have been saved in the highest quality JPEG
format. Do not mix pictures and text within the same attachment.
Please avoid excessive use of abbreviations. If an abbreviation
is unlikely to be known by most readers, serving or retired, the
words should be written in full initially, followed by the abbreviation,
in brackets. After that the abbreviation may be used on its own.
Photographs should be black & white or colour prints. A picture
that is considered suitable as a front or back cover should be a
large colour print, preferably the size of the cover (A4). Do not
send negatives (we do not have developing/printing facilities) or
digitally reproduced pictures, which cannot be scanned because of
their dot pattern. Photographs should be captioned on the back (preferably
using a stick-on label rather than writing on the back of the print).
Initials should be included, with names and ranks of those shown
receiving decorations, awards, trophies etc. Please pack photographs
so that wet ink or other substances do not rub off on the surface;
pack them face to face, back to back and include some stiff backing.
Photographs will be returned if requested, otherwise they are passed
on to the Corps Museum Photographic Library, who will select photographs
considered to be of of historic interest for retention.
