Question. I was watching "Fighting Lady" on YouTube and suddenly realised that the gun camera film was colour and how much more helpful it must have been to combat analysts than black-and-white. Do you know when the USN adopted it? Was there a simultaneous decision by the USAAF and Marines? I thought in that age of Kodachrome that colour took a lot longer to process than black-and-white so in that respect its use is a surprise. Or was it issued specially for the film? Seems unlikely, but it is an interesting question!

Hi! I"m trying to locate some 16mm film (actual film, not video) from gun cameras in Europe in WWII. Does NOT have to be original, but does need to be a film version. Any suggestions? Thanks, Hugh LTC, USA (Ret.)
