Would it be possible to mail me a larger image of the Northumberlands for my website Bellewaarde 1915?

Thanks

Martin

British awaiting the Germans at ' Plugsteet Wood '.


This looks very much like a posed photo, but full of interest nevertheless. Can you date it reasonably accurately?

The fascinating thing for me is the variety of headgear. Do you know what was the official attitude to the wearing of woollen hats early in the war?

More Ypres images.


This is the first coloured photo of the FFW that I have seen, and is remarkable. Do you know if this was actually taken with an early colour film or has the print been tinted later, like many of the old postcards - if so it has been done very well.

Do you know of any collections of similar photos?

Its a modern , computerised colourisation of an original B&W photo. There are, however, many original colour photos (especially from French sources) of WW1 available to be viewed online... a few of which have been posted on this forum from time to time.

Thanks. Any idea where I might start a search?

Put 'colour WW1 photographs' into Google and see what you get... a good deal of the French ones on the very first page of a Google Images search are original colour photos.

Thanks, I've done that, and what an amazing collection.
