A Kodachrome colour photograph of Brigadier General Swinton, taken by JCA Redhead (1886-1954) during World War Two. Brigadier General Swinton is wearing British army battle dres. His shoulder patch shows he is a Scots Guard. 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.
