Hi Robert,

You're welcome and I hope others enjoy some browsing.  I've found it as good as the IWM site.  Both site's images seem free to use for non-profit use.  Does this apply to http://www.manchester-regiment.org.uk/index.php?  Ultimately the other sites provide great scenes for the places the Manchesters served, but the Regimental Archive shows the men.

Tim

Tim.
I'm glad that you've discovered the regimental image archive. This is still in its infancy and there are several thousand photographs and albums still to be digitised for inclusion.  Understandably soldiers and their families feature on the majority but there are many other photographs.
