    My other half cannot believe I have spent the day scanning, reducing and enhancing my father's old scrap books from WW2.
    I have uploaded them for you enjoy and naturally help with with some identification.
    They are the best I can enhance they are mostly newsprint with the occasional photo strewn about.

    Very nice. I've got some WW11 era American Rifleman magazines that have some aircraft in them. I should borrow a scanner and do this as well.
