    Background: Kitwe was last week upgraded to city status -- the only other city in Zambia with Lusaka. These was no official ceremony to mark to new status but this event is the first that the new city has performed. A pamphlet on Kitwe, the 6th Batallion and the ceremony is enclosed. As this is the second of my tests in colour, would you please give a detailed report on its quality. It was shot, using a Wratten 85 filter, at a film speed of 32 ASA. Would you also tell me if it is possible to make black-and-white copies from this already-low-contrast film. Thanks
