Request: Volunteers & e-Volunteers for donations from The National Archives (UK)

Fae-6
Hi,

Our friend Jo in the The National Archives has uploaded a test
photograph at <http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lt-General_Sir_Bernard_Montgomery.jpg>.

Comments or offers to help with later mass uploads and categorization
would be gratefully received. This image is one of an initial test set
of 300 original scans of never before published World War II artworks
in their collections for which we hope to encourage Wikipedia
biography articles to be created about these war time artists (as
commissioned by the Ministry of Information). Consequently help on
Wikipedia fostering that side of the collaboration is also needed.

Over the summer the idea is to publish to Wikimedia Commons something
in the order of (a multiple of) 10,000 images from the digital
collections, for the first time uploaded to the internet for the
public benefit. Experimenting with the initial test set will establish
our best practice for metadata requirements and layout.

Wikipedia Collaboration page:

Cheers,
Fae

This might be a good place to use the "depicted person" field and template (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Depicted_person), which I don't see used very often. (Is there a reason for that?)
