Description

A Kodachrome colour photograph of Air Chief Marshal Arthur William Tedder (1890-1967), taken by JCA Redhead (1886-1954) during World War Two. Tedder had joined the Royal Flying Corps during World War One. A career in the Royal Air Force followed. On D-Day in 1944 Tedder was Deputy Supreme Allied Commander for the Allied invasion force and Air Commmander-in-Chief for air forces in Europe. This photograph is a Kodachrome transparency. Introduced by Kodak in 1935, Kodachrome is regarded as the first 'modern' colour photographic proces. Kodachrome film was imported into Britain from the USA and was in very short supply during World War Two. As Head of Kodak Ltd's Photo Finishing department in Harrow, England, Redhead had acces to supplies of this scarce colour film.
