IWM Official Photography WW2

Discussion in 'Research Material' started by ResearcherAmanda, Jul 20, 2021.

  1. Hello everyone!

    My grandfather served in the Queen’s Royal (West Surrey) Regiment, 2nd/5th territorial battalion in WW2.

    From the regiment histories, I understand that they were visited by King George VI on at least 3 occasions -
    • 22nd August 1942
    • 1943 in Libya
    • July 1944 while in Tivoli
    I have found that the Imperial War Museum has a collection of official WW2 photography - Collection: WAR OFFICE SECOND WORLD WAR OFFICIAL COLLECTION

    Has anyone any experience of how to request access to IWM collections? Or, perhaps someone already has official photographs from Queen’s Royal (West Surrey) Regiment, 2nd/5th territorial battalion in WW2?

    In either case, would be great to get in touch,

    thank you, Amanda
