    Better to post links and video rather than try to describe this story of film left undeveloped for 70/80 years.

    Simply amazing. Thanks @aVdub. Despite being from a military backround, I've never been an avid war-history lover. But when the guy in the vid was explaining the process that he follows and the first image was shown, the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end. This is a brilliant project that I never thought I'd be interested in, but am now. :thumbsup:

    Used to process black and white film and print them as my job about 35 years ago, always loved it. The squeak of the reel when he was winding the films on brought back memories.
    Used to be fun silver plating coins in the fixer, (removes silver nitrate from negatives). ThNks for sharing.
