Many of the photos that will be used on this website can be found in the public on-line domain and their source and copyright holders are unclear. Where the photos have been used with the explicit permission of their owners then these are acknowledged and accredited below. Any videos that have been linked are very clearly credited to their owners and linked through to their channels / websites.
I am happy for my photos to be used in any form freely. My aim is to highlight the plight of the remaining Crete ships - in particular Creteboom and Cretehawser - and as such I want my photos to be circulated far and wide
David has kindly allowed me to display his fabulous photographs of #Creteboom that can also be found @myirishdrone on Instagram and Facebook. They are watermarked and must only be used with the permission of their owner
The photos of Cretetree on Scalpay are the property of March Calhoun who writes a blog "Exploring the Isles of the West' and wrote a blog https://marccalhoun.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-cretetree-hulk.html in 2015
Andrew Morrell has kindly allowed me to present some of his photographs of Cretehawser taken in 2020. These are his photos and may only be used with his express permission
A big thanks to those that have contributed photos from their personal albums, recollections and even poetry. I believe all are accurately and properly accredited. The list will grow and if you are not mentioned but your contribution is used, I will add you on my next update. But so far :-
Pascal J M Murray - 'The Lady Boyne Crew'
Andrew Cassidy - 'Bows will be boys' and 'Junior Matthews jumping from the Black Boat'
Stephen Swinhoe - 'Cretehawser 2015'
John MacSharry - for his poem about The Lady Boyne
I sincerely apologise if I have unknowingly used a photo that belongs to you. It is often unclear as to the provenance and copyright of a photograph found on the internet. This is particularly true of historic photos. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you discover your work presented here without appropriate credits and copyright acknowledgment.
One hope that I have is that by publishing this website in advance of my book, I will be able to discover stories, photos, poems, facts that are not known today and that help tell the story of the Life and Times of The Crete Fleet #thecretefleet.
