The success of the digitisation project and this website would not have been possible without the help and hard work of a great many people - the main contributors are named here.

Special thanks must go to the Victims Strategy Implementation Fund for their financial support and to all the newspapers and photographers who so generously allowed material to be reproduced on the site.
