That's much better, Joanne  :)  It's 200 dpi but there is far more detail in the baby and far less bandng.

Thank you

Jim, wrong on both counts, it is a RCAF uniform, and it is a real baby boy.

If it was a girl, I would agree she would be a doll.  But since it is a boy, I can't agree  :D

Yes, he was a fighter pilot - RCAF on loan to the RAF.  He received the Distinquished Flying Cross, that is the cross you see.
