Welcome to RootsChat :)

Post on of them on here to start off with. Try and give a description of who is in the picture if you can too. It makes it more interesting for a start.

Hi and welcome to Rootschat,
If you can scan them individually and in colour mode at a resolution of 300dpi and post a file size of just below 500kbs and post them on here, we can restore them for you.

The branch of military, unit designation, rank and any other detailed descriptions/info will help if you desire any color restorations.

There is a help topic at the top of the board to guide you through the process see "How to post an image."

I suggest that you try to get a higher resolution scan.  These are very small files ( 27kB out of a possible 500 kB) so I find very little to work on.  This one I tried  seems to be at a low resolution of 72 dpi, can you try say 300dpi?

Anyway.... perhaps others can do a better job..

Never mind.  See what others come up with.

Did you take the pictures with your phone?
