I agree with you as the 4th Bn were in Salonika in 1916 - probably a scanning error

Is there a simple way/application to change to a negative?

Right click,"copy" image, paste it to "Paint" or similar "artshop" programme, "invert" image.

Hope this works.

Thanks for the instructions. It did the trick but still can't read.

Shred,

I tried adjusting brightness and contrast from the image posted on the Forum and had little success as I had to magnify the image and lost resolution doing so. Maybe you could get better results from your original. Try magnifying a section to 200% and then adjust brightness/contrast/midtones. You may get a better look at the words.

Good Luck,

shawn
