This was announced on the local London news last week:

Imperial War Museum commemorates Armistice Day by releasing photos of WWI dead on Flickr | Culture24
The trouble is that a lot of these organisations have started to late. During the past 20 years several War Memorials, Rolls of Honour, have disappeared from Church's, Pubs & Clubs which have closed down or been demolished. Hundreds of WW1 personal momento's, photographs, cards & letters have been destroyed when the older generation have died, and relatives have been to indiferent, and binned the lot.
Luckily Bill & I managed to save a lot.
