That's crazy, man. I didn't know they even had color film back then. Or that their uniforms were such a tasteful shade of blue. Powder blue no less.

Superfrankenstein-
They had colors back then, but they fought in a different battalion, which is why we don't see them in that picture.

And with the above comment, you walked right into that one. I claim no fault.

Superfrankenstein,

Of course they had colors, goddammit.

Red. White. And blue.

The only colors.

Not only did they have colors, they had color FILM. Every now and then our local PBS station runs "WWI In Color" programs. Looks like it's mostly British film.

Hi, Elayne

British moving pictures? And they got us all excited about these French stills?

GRRR!
