Photo Credits

Based on research and discussions, I believe that most wartime photos related to special attack forces are in the public domain. This excludes certain photos in recently published books under copyright if the photos have not previously been made public.

This page tries to list as accurately as possible the sources of photos used on this web site. The photos in the public domain posted on the web sites of the U.S. Navy's Naval History and Heritage Command and NavSource have been valuable sources.

Many photos on this web site are not listed on this Photo Credits page. These include personal photos (primarily in sections on Museums, 2004 Japan Trip, and Monuments) and images of works being reviewed (primarily in sections on Books and Films).

The Acknowledgments page lists the many organizations and people who have provided permission for use of photos on this site.

If anyone believes that I have used any photo without proper credit and permission, please contact Bill Gordon at wgordon@wesleyan.edu. I will change the credit or remove the photo based on the information provided to me.

Numbers are shown below for some web pages with multiple photos. These numbers represent photo locations on a page, from left to right and from top to bottom.
