Here is a colourised version of the

uncolourised version of the Badgeman

image posted by Jack White. I have colourised only the

right side and have not colourised the left side.

What seems to be a picket fence is visible.

This 'picket fence' was not physically added or painted in

but rather emerged while colourising.

The image was colourised using well known and

readily available computer image colourising software.

Does anyone know what the significance, if any, of the symbol

- a circle enclosing a cross is? (See Badgeman's lower right side and higher left side.)

Do these have any meaning? Was this insignia part of the DPD uniform?

If not, what would it be doing on the uniform of the DPD?

Does it have any significance in an American context?

IMO, the man beside him is wearing - what I believe to be -

a wire or an earpiece in his left ear. He is also, IMO, wearing

light coloured sunglasses. I base this on the presence of

a tiny reflection mark above the area of the right eye.

This looks,IMO, like the glint off the rim

of a pair of sunglasses.

The image may be of interest.

Eugene,

Your colorization is very well made, but how on earth can you discern an earpiece from that image, when Moorman’s Polaroid lens did not have the power to capture it?

This is the original photo of the Moorman photo, as you see it’s just grainy dots and blobs.

I have been told by former Dallas policemen that that is a badge worn by police who had gone through EMT training.

See the sleeve of Billy Bass below.

Thanks for that piece of information, Steve.

Do you know if it appears on both sleeves - right and left?

................... as you see it’s just grainy dots and blobs.

Here is a very rough enhancement and colourisation of your original Badgeman.

Jack White and Gary Mack did all the hard graft on their version.

Unfortunately I don't have their expertise or access to state of the art techniques.

As for ' grainy dots and blobs ' nowadays we call those pixels.

Thanks again.

This image is from the very inferior LAMSON/THOMPSON DRUM SCAN, which

is worthless. It is recognized by the prominent piece of lint and the inferior

quality of Badgeman. Studying it is a waste of time.

Here is a sharpened and cleaned version of my colourised version

of the uncolourised version of the Badgeman image kindly posted by Jack White.

Is the figure on right wearing some sort of hat or cap?

Is that a tassle or bobble hanging to his right?

I hope it may be of interest.
