4.19. Colour photographs.-
It is also desirable to take colour photographs of injuries, for these are the only photographs that give a true picture of the age and extent of many significant injuries, such as bruises and abrasions. It is these comparatively minor injuries that are often of the greatest importance in reaching a medical diagnosis in a case of alleged rape.1
