Colour photograph was in its infancy so I would think that these photo's were coloured later

I believe every image and video from WWI was black and white. Much colour has been added lately to give people a better sense of the war. Colour can really add alot to warfare. Also, if you look at the images the colour is too perfect for a true colour image from that era for, as LeEnfield said, colour imagery was in it's infancy. If you look at true colour imagery from WWII it is no where near that standard so these are clearly add ons (as you liked to call them).

That aside, they are really nice photographs. Thanks for sharing.

EDIT: After a closer inspection of the photos they look to perfect to be from WWI. I'd even be as inclined to say they aren't from WWI. But I don't have enough proof for this so I may be wrong but I am sceptical.
