The Imperial War Museum acquired the portraits between 1917 and 1920, following an international appeal advertised in war-time ration books as well as the press
When Claude “Chuckles” Choules died in Perth Australia earlier this year, the world lost the last combat veteran of WWI. Chuckles was 110. As the centennial of the war’s outbreak approaches, memorials are being planned. The Imperial War Museum is publishing a series of portraits called Faces of the First World War. An early installment is reproduced above. The BBC has more.
