Charles David MacIver Ritchie, CBE
Laughter is the Best Weapon is a collection of the memories of Brigadier Charles Ritchie. I was asked to digitise and modestly restore the images used in the book. Selected photos are shown below, before and after restoration. Use the slider on each image to compare.
I had previously shot Charles as part of a college assignment, and it was with great sadness that I learned of his sudden passing two days after he submitted the manuscript for this book.
Laughter is the Best Weapon: The Remarkable Adventures of an Unconventional Soldier will be published by Pen & Sword Military on 30th July 2021.
It can be preordered on their website.
