A Kodachrome colour photograph of an unknown United States army officer, taken by JCA Redhead (1886-1954) during World War Two. This officer wears the typical service dress uniform of the American Army in Europe. The rank badges on his shoulder straps shows that he is a brigadier general. Kodachrome, regarded as the first 'modern' colour process, was announced by Kodak in 1935. Kodachrome film was imported from the USA and was in very short supply during World War Two. As Head of Kodak Ltd's Photo Finishing Laboratory in Harrow, England, Redhead had access to supplies of this scarce colour film.
