The Royal British Legion has launched a huge campaign for the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. Every Man Remembered brings together well known faces from the world of entertainment, business and the arts to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on the battlefields of the First World War.
 
The Every Man Remembered campaign is asking the British public to pay tribute to each and every one of the 1,117,077 men and women from the Commonwealth who died in the First World War. It's been launched with a series of celebrity portraits, including Downton writer Lord Julian Fellowes (pictured), Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford and historian Dan Snow.
 
Dr Stephen Clarke, Head of Remembrance at The Royal British Legion says: “Every Man Remembered will be our greatest act of Remembrance during the First World War Centenary. We’re asking the British public to commemorate every one of the 1,117,077 men and women who died, during the First World War through our huge online database. You can look up a family member, namesake, or make a random search – the important thing is that not a single one of them is left without a dedication and recognition of the role they played in providing the freedom we have today."
 
By entering their name and town, the Every Man Remembered database will connect people with fallen servicemen from the First World War, finding someone in their family, or who shares their name, age, workplace, birthday or hometown. They can then commemorate them with a personal dedication and, if they make a donation to The Royal British Legion, they will receive a special commemorative certificate.
 
The campaign also incorporates Every Woman Remembered, dedicated to the 800 women in the records of the CWGC who died in the First World War.
