And they offered to pay for it ......
I make a significant percentage of my income from photography and occasionally roll my eyes at posts where people are giving images away and undercutting working photographers who are carrying all the overheads, but out of the blue today I received an email from the media company that put together the Legion Magazine which is the magazine published by The Royal British Legion which is the UK charity which supports both serving and veteran members of the armed forces.
I took the picture during a visit to the National Memorial Arboretum which is a memorial dedicated to all members of the armed services who have given the ultimate sacrifice, all their names a carved into the walls.
There are many good friends and ex comrades listed on those walls and even though I was asked what my rate for an editorial one time usage and full page interior would be, I have given the licence gratis.
Sometimes it is not about money.
This is the image.
