Royal Marines WW2 photographs
« on: Friday 18 August 17 22:15 BST (UK) »
Looking through old family photos I came across the following pictures which may be of interest to some people. I personally would like to know the names of the others featured in the pictures. Perhaps someone may recognise their relatives in them. The  photograph has written upon  the mounting " To Jim, all our love Jackie and Sadie"
Sorry getting an error message when trying to attach pictures. Any advice please.

Original message said too large. I then deleted three of the pictures and tried to post one but the message then read "this file name has already been used"
I have just managed to post this photo on the restoration page after making a copy and retitling it in my pictures file but it has come out very large.

There are guidelines for posting pictures here including renaming them

Rosie, Thank you very much for the link. I'll have a good look at the various topics and find out where I'm going wrong.

I think I will have to load them individually. This one I think was taken in Scotland where he was based at first (HMS COPRA not actually a ship)

This one shows a burial at sea. Think my dad was the photographer.
