In order to mark that it's been 100 years since World War I, The British legion set up the 'Every Man Remembered' campaign, featuring some names that might catch the interest of younger generations.

The campaign posters show the birth and death dates of soldiers who fought in the First World War, who happen to share names with celebrities like Harry Styles, Tom Jones and Andy Murray. Each of the posters remarks that these particular men weren't famous, although they very well should be remembered. Along with each commemoration is a bit of each soldier's story, which is just one of millions. The campaign site also features a database where you can search for soldiers and honor them, even 100 years later. Stats for Unsung Soldier Campaigns Trending: This Quarter & Average
