Getting To Know Your Military Ancestors Through Photographs And Memorabilia
Many of us have old family photographs, but sometimes it can be frustratingly difficult to guess the identity of the sitter. A knowledge of the way photography and fashions changed can narrow down the date at which a photograph is likely to have been taken. In the same way that fashions change, so do military uniforms. But unlike fashions, uniforms changed at set dates and once you know the basics you can start identifying your own.  Speaker Graham Bandy hopes you'll let him help you with this 'dark art', and invites you bring along your own photographs for identification and dating. They need to be originals, though. He'll do his best from a very high resolution scan, but really, you need to find that original.
