This is my first full photo colorization I have ever done. I referred to actual World War I uniform colors to try and get the most accurate colors, but apologies if there is some minor inaccuracies.
Here is the [original photo](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5c/German_soldier_Leo_M%C3%BChlegg%2C_mi.%2C_vor_1915.jpg).
There is a small story behind this photo. This photo would be the last taken of the bearded soldier in the middle, Leo Mühlegg, before he would perish in combat later in 1915. Here is the [in memoriam card](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/22/German_soldier_Leo_M%C3%BChlegg_Sterbebild_27.07.1915.jpg). All those who served in the Great War had stories, many unfortunately left untold, and it is fortunate to be able to have some story behind those in this photo.
Wonder how they wore gas masks with those thick beards?
