    Thank you for sharing this link. I always find it interesting to see how the war would have looked through the eyes of the participants.

    Cheers

    Interesting to see these pictures in colour, thanks for showing them here as they had been linked to on FB, but not everyone here uses FB I think.

    Great images! - I particularly like this one of the captured British Mark V pressed into German service and then ironically blown apart by the original owners .......!?

    It would be more accurate to describe them as 'coloured photographs' as there was no colour photography at the time...

    Not sure that is true mate, the French were early pioneers of the technique.

    Was more a system for producing colour slides than what we would consider colour photos-the comparison would be between, say daguerreotypes and glass plate photos-you get an image but very limited in scope.

    But not coloured after the fact as you seemed to imply and you can produce coloured images from them and they are taken in colour during the period, unless I am much mistaken.
