I had a go and tried to make it real but old, but not easy. Hope I haven't overdone it.

I am very grateful for all the pictures improved by members. Of course I am.
I am in touch with a living relative of Giles and will wait until all the entries are in and then pass
them to her for her to choose which one she thinks is best.
I do know newsprint photos are awful because the paper used was so rough and they were generally printed by letterpress which can leave an uneven finish.
