William Jake P,

 

I would be very grateful if you could do something with this one once the studying is over?

 

Good luck with the finals.

 

Regards

William Jake P,

 

That is absolutely brilliant - I am 'gobsmacked'!

The couple in the photo are Robert and Beatrice Lax and was taken (I believe) on their wedding day in 1925. Their granddaughter provided me with the photo, asking which regiment he belonged to. The family thought that he was Royal Engineers but members of this forum have identified him as being Royal Artillery (RFA).

I really hope that this hasn't interfered with your studies? Good luck with them

Once again - absolutely brilliant. Thank you very much.

 

Regards,

 

Kev Loughnane.

Thank you Kev, quite a nice story, wonderful how this forum can find things out with the littlest amount of information, truly love it. Any other photos needed just ask, i'm always open.

William Jake P,

 

I have forwarded the colourised photo to Robert and Beatrice Lax's granddaughter - she loves it. She uses the word "Awesome"  - I agree!

Thank you,

William Jake P,

 

The attached is a photo of my wife's great grandfather, Philip Card. The photo was taken in Egypt whilst he was serving in the Royal Engineers during the Great War.

 

I fully appreciate that you have a lot of studying to do (I really don't envy you!), and I can see from the forum that you already have a lot of photos to work on, so please take as much time as necessary. Obviously your studies take priority so I am happy to wait as long as needs be.

 

Thank you,

 

Regards,

 

Kev Loughnane.

Jools McKenna,

 

Thank you. It is a photo that my wife and I had never seen before, until we sent a "Grandparents Book" to her grandmother in the States. It was amazing how much information came back to us and the photos were brilliant - we discovered that she had served in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force during the Second World War. A project that was certainly worth doing!

 

Regards,

 

Kev Loughnane

Hopefully you may be able to do something with the other photo that I posted.

Hi again.

 

This poor quality photo is the only one a friend of mine has of her grandfather who was killed in action.

 

Can you do anything with it?

Hello Everyone,

 

My computer had quite a critical error and colorization was not possible for me for a bit, but I will be back soon. I am sorry for making false promises, that was very inappropriate of me. Hopefully I can get these done soon.

 

My apologies.

I have no photos to add to your ever growing list but I would like to compliment you on your altruism. The results are spectacular, and I have no idea why you would do this for complete strangers for no reward! Gives me hope for humanity. 

 

Brilliant.

William Jake P,

 

 

As HERITAGE PLUS says - these things happen. As you are providing this wonderful service free of charge I don't see that anybody is in a position to complain!!!

 

I am happy to wait for as long as it takes.

 

Regards,

 

Kev Loughnane

I agree with the last two posts. Nothing has happened to the photo in the last 103 years so another few weeks or months makes no difference.

 

I appreciate your kind offer.
