While most links still work, some are gone due to either I updated the image or the hosting site such as Google Drive / Photobucket etc has updated (changed) things themselves. Please check my other photobucket images. Updated links might also be listed in newer posts in this thread.

Changed a few things around via the post edit function so the copyright is updated as are the long download URL lists.

The term "Cokley Family Collection" has appeared in the copyright section. I received advice on how to label, acknowledge and protect the personal historical material I use on the website.  The use of a personal collection label was suggested as one way to achieve this objective. I also have noted a similar personal collection label in various historical publications eg Comeng V4.

Some on different forums may recognize material they have donated but wish to remain anonymous.

Material sourced from or originally produced by official organisations, libraries or archives has been noted either here or with the individual item. This is a draft experimental version of our eventual privately funded website so full acknowledgement will later appear on our private website.

I have tidied up some of my Google sites so now go to my Photobucket site which has access permissions that allow viewing of selected material by the general public. Some of the Google links still work but if you find they do not, just use the Photobucket link instead.
