British War Memorial Project

An online war memorial, or an Internet project holding over 500000 photos of the graves and memorials to British and Commonwealth service personnel who have died between the start of World War I in 1914, and the present day.


About the project from webpage:
”I started the British War Memorial Project in 2001 with two aims in mind; the first to create a photo archive of the graves and memorials to service personnel, so that friends and loved ones could make a ‘virtual’ visit to their resting place, at any time of the day and from anywhere in the world – without having to travel hundreds or thousands of miles at great expense.
The second objective was to allow people from any walk of life, the opportunity to become involved in what I call ‘active Remembrance’. I felt this was as important an aim as the creation of the image archive itself. Apart from the annual Remembrance events held in November, there is not a great deal of opportunity for people to show their respect and offer something back. The Memorial Project gives a sense of ownership back to those who are involved and has had a profound and meaningful impact on the lives of the Volunteers who visit the memorials and cemeteries. Not to mention those who find details of their loved ones and relatives within the Online Memorial.”



The website gets its material, photos, from volunteers and British Armed Forces operating overseas. The visitor can search the sites archive and make a virtual visit to a grave. This is the web site main purpose; that a relative can visit the virtual grave and not have to travel and or get themselves into danger.


The search function is easy to use and fast. It returns a list. I searched for “steven” and received 45 records, see picture. From the list a user can directly see if there is a grave photo. I think the creators purposes are well achieved. And it’s an example of how visitors can contribute to the site content or the online war memorial itself.

    Hello,
    I was contacted quite some time ago by one of your volunteers, Anja Van Steel. she had asked me about photos of McCALLUM EDWARD FRANCIS, at the apsley cemetery.
    I am terribly sorry in such a long delay, I got the photos but couldnt find the letter from Anja, well tonight I found the letter so I thought I would try and find where she wanted the photos sent to, would appreciate any help you may be able to offer.
    kind regards
    Merilyn Enright (australia)

    Commercial and residential lending options are vastly not the same as the other person.
    For instance by using a professional personal loan, the downpayment proportion is beyond a residential a single.

    You should analysis different creditors to enable you to
    look for the best choice for you. In addition,
    look for specifics of what purchase sorts will be the best at the moment.

    The competition among social networks is very big nowadays
    and only very quality and original websited can attract people now.

    You will not have a successful social media campaign if you do not have a good understanding of your target audience.
    t have to overload them with a lot of posts in a small time
    frame. If you’re an author, independent publisher, or small business owner, the earlier you jump in and get involved, the more connected you’ll be five years from now’and the better your business will be doing. Since the beginning of social network most people, many questions have been raised with regard to the amount of time spent on these networking sites, and how that impacts the individual that is active on the site. You could start by a simple search on different social networks with keywords that are relevant to your business.

    The LX5 features an optical zoom range of 24-90mm, which is pretty impressive when comparison-shopping with
    other comparably priced units on the market.

    While there are only two custom slots on the mode dial, the camera supports four custom settings groups at a time.
    One of the best features is the LCD screen.
