If the same family - the lady second from the right could be the sister Ada Elizabeth Akrill.

The girl second from right does look like Ada.

I think those two lads look to be older than schoolboys. 20ish perhaps?  :-\

The three girls with their hair down will be the younger ones, Ada looks to be the eldest, followed by the girl seated at the front. Next in age may be the lad front left .... I couldn’t guess at the ages and order of the others - they all look early to mid 20s to me.  :)

I've looked at the colour abnormalities and they can be restored or at least improved quite easily and while I checked it over I noticed damage and blemishes which can also be repaired and you could then have a beautiful photograph which would make a superb photoprint.  Would you care to see that done?  cheers, Ian

They all have ‘the same’ eyes ... specially noticeable in the restores I think.  ;)

Are the British WW1 uniforms meant to be khaki colour?

Waynenort, yes they are but the automatic colouring apps, are very restrictive in what colours they use and khaki isn't one of them.

Fair enough Pat. I hadn't really used the colour conversion apps to know.  :)
