TACA welcomes images and text relevant to the history of British army children. If you would like to contribute any such material to TACA, be it for preservation or for possible inclusion on the TACA website (or both), please first consider the following issues:
  • copyright law (under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, 1988, the duration of copyright for literary and artistic works is seventy years);
  • whether the content of your proposed contribution is directly relevant to the children of British Army soldiers. (Note that TACA encompasses only British army children, not those whose parents served in the Royal Navy or Royal Air Force, or else in another nation's army);
  • whether you would be prepared to give permission for your words or images to be included on the TACA website, or in any future TACA book, in return for an attribution and a credit.

If you would like to contact TACA, or to contribute material, either e-mail:
