The Imperial War Museum is posting photos of soldiers etc to a new Flickr group and inviting the public to add any information to the individual images. The first 100 are now available and to comment you must join Flickr although this is free for a basic membership. I have no doubt that members of the GWF will be able to make valuable contributions to this project considering the level of research expertise available

First World War Centenary at IWM
We will be uploading new images to Faces of the First World War every weekday between now and the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the war in August 2014.


It lends a remarkable sense of the magnitude to consider that even adding 100 new images each weekday they won't even reach 10% of UK participants by the centenary. But what a tremendous project and what a solemn way to lose oneself in the faces and people.
