The Imperial War Museum in London has set up a group on the Flickr.com photo website called Faces of The First World War

http://www.1914.org/faces/

Every day until the centenary of the First World War they will be uploading a photograph they have in their collections of a serviceman or woman. They started with 100 so there are quite a few there already. What they are wanting is people to upload comments or other images connected to the photos they post.

It may be worth keeping an eye on it in case photographs of men or women commemorated here are added. If so we may be able to add to the comments on the flickr site.

Thanks to adb41 for bringing it to my attention.

Adam

Thanks Adam.

In addition, it is possible to add your own WW1 portrait photographs to a group on Flickr, managed by IWM, called Your Faces of the First World War. You need a membership on Flickr (free) to add any pics.
