Photos Available for Purchase

All the photos on this site for which I own the copyright, plus many, many more unpublished photos, are on my Colditz photo DVD which can be purchased on eBay. These are the original, full-size pictures, not the smaller main and thumbnail pictures from the website. These include pictures right up to and including my latest trip in September 2010. Furthermore, 20% of the sale price goes to Help For Heroes, the charity for wounded service personnel. For more details and prices, please click the button below.
