    I'm probably bringing up the rear on this, but I just googled "TimeLife images" to find that they are all now on the net hosted by Google

    LIFE photo archive hosted by Google

    Type in "corsair" into the search for example and BINGO :lol:

    If you all known about this, sorry for wasting the post, but these are big images many in colour.

    Not just World War II, I also researched Manila and LIFE brought these amazing photos.

    Nowadays Manila doesn't look like this. Back then it was more cleaner, less noisy-er and smoky-er. :D

    It's great to have such a powerful source of history, like these images, in the public domain.

    My pleasure guys
