Found a picture[edit]

I've found a picture showing several pilots of 488 Squadron. But the website has a copyright note beneath it's webpage, so I assume the image is copyrighted. Is there a way to can get it here on Wikipedia? Here's the picture: No. 488 Fighter Squadron pilots at Singapore, December 1941. Wolcott (talk) 12:57, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Worth checking the Imperial War Museum (London) catalogue; if the original was an official photo then it may now be out of copyright.

G'day, I'm fairly sure that it qualifies as in the public domain (being taken before 1945) and could be uploaded using the {{PD-NZ-Crown}} licence. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 00:22, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the help but I've found a better alternative and have added it to this article. Gosh, had to wait eight long years for it. Unfortunately the original description does not idenfity the pilots in the photo, but it does say they're 488 Squadron. Wolcott (talk) 07:13, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
