Original British WWI WWII Officer Grouping - Lieutenant Albert Harris
Original Items: One-of-a-kind grouping. This is a very interesting collection of one officer's ephemera encompassing both World War One and World War Two. Lieutenant Harris was commissioned in March 27th, 1918 as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Essex Regiment. He was released on August 30th, 1920 as a full Lieutenant.
In World War Two he was recalled as a Lieutenant in the 10th Battalion of the Hertfordshire
Home Guard, and saw service until the war ended in 1945.
The grouping consists of:
Original printed Officer's Commission in his name bearing signature stamping of "GEORGE R.I." King George Vth, King and Emperor dated April 15th, 1918.
Official discharge letter from the WAR OFFICE dated August 30th, 1920.

A large framed 18" X 20" glazed photograph of Lieutenant Harris surrounded by his entire WW2 command; No.5 Platoon, 23rd. Company, 10th Hertfordshire Battalion of the HOME GUARD.
A framed glazed document dedicated to Harris thanking and confirming his service to King and Country from May 14th, 1940 until December 31st ,1944.
All in all a very nice scarce set of an officer’s military service in both World War One and
World War Two with plenty of additional research potential.
