We digitised a series of old war-time pictures for the Royal Navy's Patrol Services; the pictures were a mix of sizes on celluloid based film 'negatives'. Prior to digitisation, we wet / dry cleaned the collection using appropriate archival photographic emulsion cleaner. 
After physical restoration, we digitised at ultra-high resolution and performed digital enhancement techniques to remove age based degradation and other artefacts that could not be removed during physical cleaning and restoration. 
The project unlocked single-copy imagery, showcasing the vessels and crews of war-time naval ships in ultra high resolution. Without this extensive digitisation project, the precious media would have been left to further decay on obsolete formats.
