I wasn't sure where to put color pictures that could be added to the gallery, so I thought I'd start a thread people can post color pictures along with the source that could be added to the gallery. Sorry if I have missed a similer thread.

I haven't seen this picture in the gallery, The moment WW2 began -- German soldiers remove barrier at border with Poland and begin invasion -- Sept. 1, 1939

It's look more like a b&w photo that has been colored.

Yep, Ingsoc is right. Coloured pic.
And the most funny thing is that they are not German soldiers...
At least formally. They are members of Danzig Heimswehr.
Sort of para-military organisation. Definitely trained, uniformed, armed and supplied by Germans, but not really German.

Tiger, idea is very good... we should also introduce sort of photo verification.
I think that Mods have someone to keep the "hawks eye" on it...

Cheers, have a good day! You and Ingsoc!

Hello all,
For anyone interested in color WWII photographs we are in possession of a very large collection of large format (4x5 and 8x10) Kodachrome color transparencies. My Father was a US Army photographer is WWII and served in North Africa and Italy. He was one of only a small handful of photographers to have use of the large format Kodachrome film at the time. He kept the transparencies in a metal cabinet in our basement for almost 60 years and finally brought them all out for display. We have had a few shows and Dad has enjoyed swapping stories with other WWII Vets.
