As a special Christmas gift for his wife, my customer had his deceased father-in-law's RCAF military memorabilia framed in a shadow box. Besides his father-in-law's medal rack, a wing patch and a replica WWII heraldic squadron patch with the King's crown are displayed.
The only photo that my customer had of his father-in-law in uniform was a small portion of a photo that appeared to have been torn from an aircrew group photo taken during the war. It was only 0.96" (w) x 3.4" (h), but was in very good shape. I was able to enlarge the photo to approximately three times the original size (2.84"x9.82") and it only needed some minor photo restoration done on it.
A light blue coloured suede mat was chosen to represent the 'Air Force'. Tru Vue conservation clear glass, with its 99% UV protection, was chosen to help protect the items in the shadow box.
I received a very nice e-mail from my customer after Christmas to let me know that his wife loved her gift!
