Re: what a slimey person

Hi Bruce

I consider that I have also made my point - we disagree.

Some authors receive expenses to purchase photographs - I never have.

Royalties on WWII aviation books are probably at an all time low. However, I don't write for profit (although its always appreciated), but because I value history. If I am able to share what knowledge I have amassed over many years of research (mainly with no-longer-with-us veterans), then I am content.

Some authors charge a fee for information, others charge for copies of photographs. I have always allowed any photographs from 'my' collection to be used - often without any form of acknowledgement.

History belongs to all - and should be free IMHO!
