    It might be a good idea to add the exact date of the photo after the source. And perhaps also if something’s not accurate in the original caption, write a comment with the updated information? Until the next one 🙂

      The exact date of the photos isn’t easy on all the photos, but essentially the photos are taken with a margin of one week, as mentioned in the title of each post.
      about the caption thing, could you give me an example please?

        For example the passenger plane that was shot down over Ukrain had 298 souls on board. the POW format is already quite enjoyable to read and trigger my interest in checking out the stories behind the photos, I just wanted to suggest a couple improvements.
