Great War Photos.

Great War photos was launched in January this year, in anticipation of the 2014-18 centenary of the First World War. Webmaster Paul Reed is using it to showcase some of the thousands of rare photographs he has amassed over a thirty year period.
Many published for the first time with a connecting story too. WW1 is something which fascinates me, like many others something I also have a family connection to, it's also something I'd love to know more about.
Definitely one to bookmark and keep an eye on, a real work in progress.


  1. Great post! My fav family WW1 pic is this one of my step-grandfather(on right).. http://twitpic.com/9cvnei
    I've no idea who the gent on the left is, but he looks like a silent-movie bad guy!

  2. Nice one, my Great Grandad's WW1 portrait was used on an album cover. http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/40142_1596483464501_1008390703_1694147_7064363_n.jpg
