A picture of my father and his tank crew taken in 1943. He was the driver and is standing 2nd on the right. The tank is a Churchill.
He has carried the original black and white photo in his wallet since it was taken, it is about 2.5" x 1.5". I scanned it and used photoshop to make it into a duo-tone, added a tiny amount of noise for atmosphere.
Edit,
I should add the photograph was taken just before he and rest of his squadron departed for France.

Hope they all survived the war!

It's thanks to them, and folks like them, we aren't speaking a foreign language today..... we owe them so much.

Thanks for posting this. It is a sober reminder despite their cheerfulness.

Cheers, Goggz
