Holding Album. Add your own photos here
Any problems registering contact us via the Contact Us page
Register on the gallery to upload your photo, or to post a comment against any photo. Gallery registration is completely separate to Forum registration. Gallery registration requires approval before you can post. This can take anything up to 48 hours, but is likely to be much quicker. You will receive an email notification when you have access. Do not repeat registration requests unless you are asked to do so. Any problems contact Pete via the Contact Us section HERE
Maximum size of any photo that users can upload is 2mb. Most photos will be less than this. If larger than the 2mb limit the photo will appear to be uploading but will not display. Contact the CVA above if this happens.
Add your photo
nb. Black and white or Greyscale photos where colour has been added at a later date are generally not accepted into the gallery.
Having registered and received your welcome email, go to the gallery home page and log in.
Open the Holding album. If you are reading these instructions you are already there.
If you are logged in you will see in the column on the left of the page "Add Items" which you should click on.
Click "Choose File" and find where you stored your photo on your computer in the box that appears.
Double click its title or thumbnail, and you will see the image title load into the 'Choose File' section.
Now scroll down the page a bit and below Watermark and Thumbnails boxes you will see another box called "Add Items".
Click on that and "hey presto" watch it load.
Add information. Having posted your photo into the Holding Album, and whilst still logged in, use the Add Comments facility at the foot of each photo to add any additional details. These will be checked when your photo is reviewed for inclusion by the Gallery Admin.
These instructions are repeated here: How to add photos
1. Photos must be of Commandos. Infantry, or Royal Marines, training squad photos are generally not accepted as not all in them went onto serve in the Commandos. Additionally up until the late 60s Marines still had a choice of Commando service or ship service, ie. Commando green beret, or Royal Marines blue beret. See this link to our RM Commando History since WW2
2. The Commando service of any individual, and the Commando Unit he served in, must be established before any photo is moved from the Holding album into the Gallery. This is the responsibility of those providing any images. If not listed elsewhere on our website such as in our nominal rolls or ROH, or clear from the image, evidence of an individual's service in a Commando must be provided. The Holding Album 'Recent Comments' section below shows whether a photo has been accepted into our gallery, or otherwise. Read the full terms and conditions in relation to the photos you post here: Gallery Terms and Conditions.
