About the Photographs

Most, if not all, of the pictures come from one of the following sources:

• Central Office of Information/Air Ministry (now out of copyright and in the public domain)
• Private collections of photographs given freely
• 111 Squadron’s photographic archives

Classic Machine Films is purely providing a service to restore and reprint these images and no copyright is claimed for any of the photographs (unless otherwise stated). Photographs will be removed from the collection should any party legitimately claim them to be their copyrighted property. 

Reprint Sizes

At this time reprints are available in 5" x 7", A5, A4 and A3 sizes. All sizes except A5 may be printed with or without a 5mm border. A5 can only be printed with a border. If you require a different sized border this can usually be arranged. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

For reference:

A5     5.8" x 8.3" (148mm x 210mm)

A4     8.3" x 11.7" (210mm x 297mm)

A3     11.7" x 16.5" (297mm x 420mm)

Please note that not all of the images will scale well to A3. You may notice some of the imperfections in the original photograph. In most cases you would need to  examine the photograph closely to notice anything, but we feel you should be aware. Where this is the case it is mentioned on the product page.
