New photographs have been released to mark centenary of end of First World War on November 11, 1918. The UK's Press Association issued selection of 100 images from century ago. They were originally fading black and white images but have been painstakingly enhanced and recreated. They provide us with clearer idea of what happened during and after War, which killed nine million people. The photographs show wounded soldiers, prisoners of war, fighting in trenches, and scenes in London after the day the Armistice was signed to end War. One shows a soldier having haircut in makeshift mountain barbershop on the Albanian front.
A UK-based photo colouriser recreated coloured photos. Tom Marshall told reporters he wanted to do something special to commemorate 100-year anniversary of World War 1, which at the time was called "the war to end all wars". Mr Marshall said: "I began colourising black and white photos professionally in 2014, coinciding with centenary of outbreak of WW1 in 1914....To mark the centenary of end of the First World War, I decided to collate 100 images I've colourised in tribute to men and women who lived through war, and those who lost their lives." He added: "I included men and women of several nationalities, races and religions, as the entire world was affected by war."
