    I wish to use the white bearded white iris photo on this website in a logo for a charity providing funding for Integrated Health Care for returned Service personnel (particularly from Afghanistan) who are suffering post-traumatic stress) and members of the general public who can not otherwise afford this comprehensive level of care.
