Shared Photo: Private Coates, 11th Light Horse Regiment

+15 votes

I would like to nominate this photo for 'photo of the week', recently provided to me by my 3rd cousin, who recently had the photo restored by Painting the Past UK.    It's a great photo of a Light Horseman in WW1.

I wanted to share this family photo of Alec Coats with the community. Location: Brisbane, Australia. Date: unknown.

That looks awesome, Veronica!

Did they give you a higher-resolution version? It sure would be neat to see it better. (And, technically, it's got to be at least 500 pixels wide to be featured as a Photo of the Week.)

On the case for a better version...
I have managed to get my hands on a higher resolution photo.  Should I detach the other one and upload the new one.  Will this affect the entry in Photo of the Week?  I think it is Wednesday now?

I've added a much higher resolution photo - Original digital image2400 x 1800 pixels.  Will detach the first one if thats whats needed?

Wow, that is awesome, Veronica! I love seeing the detail.

Eowyn manages the Photo of the Week. I'll make sure she sees this.

Thanks Chris!

I'm psyched that this won! Doesn't he look great on the home page, Veronica?

Wow!  Thats great, I didn't even see the voting this week!   My internet/mail has been playing up.  Thanks everyone!!!
