'Reading' WW1 Photographs

Interpreting uniforms and regalia

One of the challenges of the Bottesford Parish WW1 Centenary Project is to interpret the photographs donated for addition to the digital archive. The untutored eye can easily miss the significance of apparently minor details for dating and providing information about what and whom is depicted. The slides in the gallery are a selection of images we used to raise discussion at Project Meetings. Thank you to Jonathan D'Hooghe for his expert advice.

One of the challenges of the Bottesford Parish WW1 Centenary Project is to interpret the photographs donated for addition to the digital archive. The untutored eye can easily miss the significance of apparently minor details for dating and providing information about what and whom is depicted. We are very fortunate that one of our volunteers, Jonathan D’Hooghe, has wide experience in ‘reading’ 1st World War photographs. The slides in the gallery are a selection of images we used to raise discussion at Project Meetings in the light of Jonathan’s expert comments.
