    Hi, my Dad did his national service in the Army back in the 1950's and I've been looking through some of his old photo's. The photo's are all very small and quite worn so I decided to try and enhance and colourise them using photoshop. I would appreciate any advise on the colours of the uniform's I've used, as I can't ask my Dad if their correct, as he's unfortunately not with us anymore.I scanned the original photo's on an A4 sheet and Ive posted them in the uncategorised section under Dad 1961. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many Thanks and great web site.

    Welcome @Orbital I will take a look at them, you could have uploaded them directly into your post here but it doesnt matter.
    I have inserted them for you.

    Great work on your colourisation mate

    Here is a good colour photo of British RMP in 1962, this would be the colour however it is dependent on the camera used and the processing of the film regarding how accurate the colours are
