Picture (Demonstration against Mugabe) in SOF[edit]

Hi TwoWings, just thought I'd let you know that Soldier of Fortune Magazine used your Demonstration against Mugabe picture in their March 2008 issue, p. 34. Its illustrating the article "The Real Ian Smith". Nice picture, indeed Manxruler 13:16, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

2. Yes, they did respect your licence and credit you for the image. Here's the direct quote: "Photo taken by Wikipedia user TwoWings and used under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 2.5 licence."
Manxruler 19:28, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
The image caption used by SOF Magazine was:
"Demonstrators in London in 2006 protest the policies of Robert Mugabe's regime in Zimbabwe. Mugabe's dictatorship has seized a number of farms and Zimbabwe has fallen from being the bread basket of Africa to a country where nearly half the people are malnourished."
Manxruler 19:36, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
Oh, yeah, and the article is about how President Mugabe has pretty much ruined his country and that Ian Smith [4] - the President of Rhodesia - wasn't really such a bad guy as Mugabe and Co. portrayed him. Manxruler 22:27, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi, My father is publishing a small book of his memoirs (in the US). It will have a small circulation (<200) since it is mainly of interest to his family and friends. He is an old navy man and a history buff. He loves your picture, Car_in_Oradour-sur-Galne4, that you posted on Wikimedia and would like to use it in his book. The picture would appear inside the book. I want to check if it is OK that he use the photo. If it is, how would you like him to credit the photo?
