As part of the IWM’s First World War Centenary Programme, photographs from the Museum’s ‘Bond of of Sacrifice’ are being uploaded to the photo-sharing site Flickr in a set called ‘Faces of the First World War’.

On Armistice Day 11.11.11, IWM made 100 previously unseen portraits of those who served in the First World War publically available for the first time on Flickr Commons.

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.

The Bond of Sacrifice 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.
