Not sure if anyone can do anything with any of these photos, but any level of improvement would be better than they are now! Thanks for looking and hopefully trying!

Niksmum, thank you so much. I am very grateful for what you have done.
They are from a collection of photos that were sent to me some time back but they were scanned at such a low resolution that it would have been impossible for anyone to do anything with them.
I have just found a new contact who had met up with the person who has the photos and had taken some high resolution images of the same pictures with her camera, which is where these have come from.

I am going to be very greedy and post some more for restoration when anyone has the time - there really is no urgency so am happy to wait until someone has the time to do them.

Some others in need of a bit of TLC - no rush!

This one is very detailed - so just hoping someone can sharpen it up a bit!

Again, just a bit of sharpening up here if possible.

I am not sure what can be done with this one as the background is so faint. The person I am interested in is the one seated in the front so if it is easier to crop the picture or fade out his comrades in the background then that would be fine!

Hope you don't mind Elaine but it's ages since I had a play at improvements so I thought I would have a go at an easy one. I'm sure an expert will be along with a better one soon. By the way, I couldn't be sure whether three of the white spots on the left coat were double breasted buttons, but I doubt it as they would be the wrong colour in those days surely? They would be easy to remove though.

Thanks Chrissie. Looks good to me! :)
I am useless at this sort of thing - about the best I can do is a quick sharpen up using something like Picassa.
