WW1PHOTOS.ORG  is dedicated to the millions of British men and women who served in the First World War, and their families. This was a selfless generation which answered the call to protect the freedom of their country. So many gave their lives, so many others returned home no longer themselves, so many families were never the same.

For millions of us these people were our great grandparents, our  grandparents, and for some still, their parents. We owe them much, and we commemorate them.

The gallery was launched in June 2014 with a private archive of around 600 photographs and the invitation to viewers to submit photographs of their own to create an expanding, permanent memorial. Today, the gallery comprises more than 3,000 photographs representing more than 14,000 individuals, making it one of the largest WW1 photographic archives in the UK.

Our intention is to commemorate these extraordinary men and women as living people through photographs: portraits, with pals, in groups, units, with families and loved ones. They are largely informal photographs taken before leaving for the front, out of the line, on leave, or in hospital. They are records of people as they were, as they lived. As they deserve to be remembered.

We invite viewers to join us and share their photographs. contact us Images supplied by viewers are credited as such, and are not posted on our Twitter or Facebook pages.  We owe these men and women much. Please join us today!

All images in the gallery are owned by ww1photos.org unless stated otherwise, and may not be reproduced without permission. We do not sell images. We are happy to supply high resolution copies of images owned by ww1photos.org for bona fide commemoration projects, formal research and educational purposes.
