Pictures of Corio / G-AEUH[edit]

I have two pictures of Corio / G-AEUH taken between May 1940 and 1942 in Egypt, in Alexandria harbour. They were taken by my father, Maurice Jacquet, a sailor in the French navy. He belonged to the so called "Force X" naval squadron (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Force_X_(escadre)) which was "prisoner” of the British from May 1940 to June 1943. The British did not want these powerful ships to fall into the hands of the Nazis, but contrary to what tragically happened in Mers-el-Kebir there was no fight between the two navies. Instead a gentlemen’s agreement was found between the French and British admirals (they were brothers in law...). My father was “freed” to join the Free French Naval Forces in late 1942. Sorry, but I could not find the way to upload the pictures. If anybody could help... --M. Jacquet (talk) 10:11, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

If you own the legal rights to the photographs then you can upload digital copies of them at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page under an appropriate free licence that will allow them to be used in this article. The upload page there will guide you though the process. - Ahunt (talk) 00:56, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
