Iím a Mac user, so Windows canít help! Iím sure there is a way, itís just that Iíve never had to use it before. Iíve been able to enhance the photo a bit, so the guys at either end on the back row now look human rather than looking like ghosts. I suspect all the guys were stokers, as they all look worn out - Hercules was a coal fired ship. And yes Dave, my grandad and I are both former Wallasey lads.
My great-uncle was on the Hood and didn't survive its encounter with the Bismarck, though only 3 of them did. Iíve been to TromsÝ fjord in Norway to see where Tirpitz was sunk. Standing on the very simple platform memorial there made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end.
