Roll of honour for the military cross, France, during World War I. This is a relatively unusual image due to its stilted and formal nature. Most of the other images are of situations and feature people going about their lives. This photograph would have been useful as propaganda which was the photographer's remit. The roll of honour featured here is for the military cross. Rolls of honour were introduced at the time to ease the grieving process and to validate death or injury for the greater good. They now also provide an invaluable and largely accurate record of those who died or received awards, the date and the circumstances.
