WW1 & WW2 historical photos


Recommended Posts

I have some photos taken in Palestine in 1917, at the end of WW1. They feature troop transports, soldiers,  a couple of famous generals entering Jerusalem etc. No idea who took them but they were given to my late father. Also, some photos of the Polish Division of the British 8th Army during the North African Campaign of WW2. Does anyone know if the 70 year rule applies to these and can I post them, under my name, as archive photos? Thanks in advance.

If taken by an Army photographer they will have been Crown copyright, and if unpublished may still be until 125 years after they were taken (CDPA s163). You may be prepared to take the small risk. Otherwise you are almost certainly in the clear.
