This includes copying text and photographic data freely without any kind of obligation or payment. Modifications however minor including changes to the text and graphics without our knowledge or formal written permission is not permitted and is strictly forbidden and is a violation of United Kingdom copyright law. Notwithstanding the above, It is customary and polite to always prominently acknowledge where data or biograhical information was obtained. By this we mean a clear and concise statement next to our unmodified work indicating it's origin. Reference need only be made to our website address (

Our work is NOT to be used by commercial users for any purpose without our express written consent. A Commercial user is defined here as any organisation or individual that obtains financial reward (directly or indirectly) as a result of using or copying our work. Registered charities who employ fulltime staff are classed as commercial users (see our reasoning below). We will not unreasonably withold this permission to legitimate applicants who merely seek to use data in a limited form or to formulate stories to commemorate the fallen. Modifications however minor including changes to the text and graphics without our knowledge or formal written permission is strictly forbidden and is a violation of United Kingdom copyright law.


We don't dispute that there are thousands of decent people working for charities out of the purist, most altruistic reasons. But at the top, many are increasingly run by interchangable "identikit" "Charidee Professionals" who would equally be happy co-ordinating Haringey Council's Diversity Unit! The RSPCA, OXfam and Royal British Legion (to name a few), although providing a valuable service to many, often advertise in " The Guardian" newspaper for £100,000 + Chief Executives! Only recently it became known that the lucky person at the head of the Cats Protection League is earning £90,000 a year! Think of all those kind, well meaning (but ignorant) volunteers staffing their shops who donate their time completely free! Packages often include a fully expensed company car, private health insurance and a performance related bonus etc... They don't give a toss where the money comes from so long as they get a large wedge of it themselves. We find it rather disgusting that a bonus should ever be paid to charity workers in the first place. These large charities are run as huge business concerns where six figure salaries are the norm. For these reasons we stipulate that our work is only to be used by small charities who do not employ fulltime staff.

We take a very dim view of individuals and organisations who copy our work and then attempt to "pass off" OUR work as their own! Not only is this unlawful (CDPA 1988), but it makes the person who did it look extremely foolish when we find out. If we come accross this kind of abuse we shall not hesitate to enforce our intelectual property rights in accordance with UK and international law. This may include issuing proceedings in the civil courts to recover our reasonable damages. Web pages aren't just the words that you see in the browser, HTML, CSS code and images count as published content too. You have no right to help yourself to images and code without permission. You can conceive of the hours, weeks, and years of diligent research and skill that go into developing an idea, you would doubtlessly not like to have somebody steal that work from you and claim it as their own! Copyright infringement is plagiarism. If you want to use our work, just ask us - you might be surprised at our friendly response...

We are always eager to assist newspaper reporters and editors with articles about the fallen men of Kent. Get in touch with us, you might be surprised at the level of co-operation & help we cheerfully provide you with.

You may do this without asking us although if you do tell us, we shall be happy to reciprocate by placing a link to YOUR website on our pages. We are always happy to hear from fellow military history enthusiasts and webmasters who wish to place a link to this website on their own pages. We shall be pleased to reciprocate.
