    The FAD Gallery/Bar in inner-city Melbourne has hatched a plan to uncover the identities of 178 "unknown soldiers" from an official war photograph taken at the end of World War I. The photo is of the 13th Field Artillery Brigade (13FAB) taken February 21, 1919

    The photo was taken by Australia's official war photographer, Cyril Jackson, in 1919 as a memento of their service, but the men's names were never recorded.

    They have isolated and digitally enhanced each of the 178 men's faces in the hope their descendants will recognise them and their stories can be told.

    Not as far as I know, but I hope they succeed in identifying all of them.
