Re: Navy Training Class Photo

This photo was damaged at our home when it was destroyed by Hurricane Michael in 2018. The glass was broken and some rainwater got into it, but it was days before we found it in the rubble. I tried several methods to dislodge the glass from the photo without damaging it, to no avail. I stopped short of one final suggestion, soaking it in water, for fear it would all be destroyed. It is a long photo. I had to scan it in two parts and stitch them together in GIMP in order to present it here.
