Today an elderly neighbour handed me a 2"x3" cardboard box with the comment "You like the war don't you" In it I discovered over 100 photos and negatives taken by a Lt Observer in the RFC, Here is one of the negatives Any Tankies out there know much about it? I will scan and show the rest when I can find time!

Download freeware IRFANVIEW, then click on IMAGE and in the drop down click NEGATIVE and voila your negative turned into a POSITIVE

A Mk IV tank tender (hence the word baggage on the sponsons). Used to support fighting tanks.

In the basic photo software that came with my computer, there's an option to reverse a picture and turn it into a negative. Of course, if you turn a negative into a negative, you get a positive. If you can't find anything on your machine, I'd be happy to do some more for you.

Lucky you! This must feel like finding gold, can't wait to see the rest

(Note to self: Must inform elderly neighbours of my war obsessions interests!)

Found the tips on turning negatives positive very useful too. My late dad, a war veteran (unfortunately wrong war for this forum) was a prolific photographer and amongst his war photos are a number of negatives that I can now look at
