Ww1 British Soldier Photo Id'd Ltcol Dso 2/5 N Staffs Reg In German Pow Camp Wwi For Sale

Ww1 British Soldier Photo Id'd Ltcol Dso 2/5 N Staffs Reg In German Pow Camp Wwi

Original WWI real photo postcard portrait sent from a German POW camp by Lieutenant Colonel Harry Johnson to Highgate Tile Works, Tunstall, Staffs, in September 1918. His regimental collar badge, which I believe is a North Staffordshire Regiment (Prince of Wales's) badge, and a shoulder patch are visible. He apparently led the 2/5 N Staffs Regiment at some point (see below).

Some preliminary searchings online turned up:

  • A "Maj. (A./Lt.-Col.) Harry Johnson, N. Staff. R." is listed as having received the Distiguished Service Order [London Gazette, Issue 30716 (published on 31 May 1918), page 6459, bottom of page, left side at North Staffordshire Regiment Lt Col Harry Johnson comes up in the UK National Archives medal cards as well as in listings of holdings of the Staffordshire Regiment Museum ("5th North Staffordshire Regiment France 1917-18; Col H Johnson Collection NSR/6913 [n.d.]," "Lt Col H Johnson's papers 2/5 North Staffordshire Regiment NSR/4325 [n.d.]". Scroll down the page at "Colonel Harry Johnson, D.S.O., T.D. of Boden Hall, Scholar Green" was appointed sheriff of Cheshire in 1945

Is it all the same man? I don't know--I don't belong to pay services like Ancestry which could giveverifying details! At any rate, this is a great research project!

This card is in good condition--please see scans.

Shipping = $1.50 to Canada, $2.00 to US, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand,and many othercountries (please email and ask if your country is not listed). No shipment to Italy!

Thanks for looking and have fun!

Note on related sale:

I have another sale going for two cabinet cards, one with the surname "Sherwin" written on the reverse in what appears to be Lt Col Johnson's handwriting, comparable to the "Sherwin" written on the postcard he mailed to Sherwin. The cab cards show soldiers on a drill or parade field and were done by a photographer in Cambridge. They and the Johnson portrait were acquired together, so I assume Sherwin was a friend, relation, or business associate of Johnson, but I don't know.
