British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

To mark Amistice Day today, the Imperial War Museum has uploaded made than 100 previously unseen portraits of those who served in the First World War publically for the first time on Flickr Commons. Taken from the Museum’s ‘Bond of Sacrifice’ which is an archive of photographs collected by the IWM between 1917 and 1920, all of the photos tell a story. The men shown in them fought – and often died – for Britain and the Commonwealth during the First World War.

As part of the First World War Centenary Programme , IWM will continue to upload photographs to Flickr Commons every weekday until August 2014, the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.
