Just reread my dads WW 1 diary. Much ink fading along with light pencill writing. If requested will post a few legible pages if anyone is interested in WW 1. If it doesnt copy

good dont blame me. Joe

I,d love to hear some of what your dad wrote about WW2

 

Here is a tip. Use a black or dark colored backer to get more contrast in your copy machine. Jusrt place it behind the page you copy. It will also blank out writing on the back of the page you copy. Good luck.

Oh count me in. You have probably seen some of the things I posted and photos of Lee's uncle who served in the GREAT WAR. I am going to photograph the things he brought back including an artillery shell, his helmet, a grenade, etc. So cool to have them and to have the provenance too. :)

O.K. guys, will get my act together next week and copy a few pages of my dads WW 1

diary. Hope they are legible. Some dont make too much sense to me as some dates

are skipped along with other things. But will try. Will try Pauls suggestions for better

copying.
