    just looking through my files, here are grandfather's medals, cap badge and dog tags from ww1 ( not a great pic, took on my old camera which was only 3mp) the first dog tag is for the kings own Yorkshire light infantry, as is the cap badge , the other two dog tags are for the 3rd London regiment (royal fusiliers), which grandfather was posted to at the beginning of 1918 wnen his koyli battalion was disbanded.Attachment 542115
    Thanks for the ' like ' , JWP. I think these medals would go great in the recent thread titled, " did your grandfather or father serve in the military?". I think that's the title. Anywho, these would be nice to honor your grandfather, possibly along with a photo and story to go with it. Just a suggestion. Thanks,
    Dean

    John, excellent and special grouping you have. Thanks for sharing it with us!! Here is the finalized portrait with the colored in Africa Star Ribbon. Sorry I couldn't get to it sooner, been working a lot. Hope you have a nice vacation

    Dean, that's awesome you actually got to hand color a portrait. I have always wanted to try it to be honest. The method you explain is almost exactly the same as how it was done in ww2 really. You know this was done as early as the late 1800's!? Crazy

    Did this one recently too. Think it was part of a LIFE photo shoot?

    excellent portrait of Jefferson DeBlanc, a Wildcat Pilot.... w/ B-6 flight helmet and jacket w/ USN MKII goggles (Source: http://navypilotoverseas.wordpress.com)
    I know the B-6 jacket probably has black fur, but it looked better this way IMO

    Kevin, here is your last portrait. I was very surprised that the colorizing actually worked on this one. But it did!

    Thank you Guys! As usual, it brings me happiness knowing that everyone is enjoying these. This is an awesome forum, and we all help each other out one way or another over time! IMO colorizing these pics is a way of using modern technology to try let people view History in a different light....so the more people who see them, the better!

    A new portrait I just picked up of an unknown Bomber Pilot who is a Deutsche Kreuz in Gold winner:
