Excellent work Mike, seems we have our man, particularly with that reference to 'Lincluden', Hoylake and Jessie. If you would be available to go to the IWM and pull a couple of pages from the archive for comparrison with the copy here in Ireland that would be super.

Excellent work - it seems we have our man - Lt. Col. Harrison Johnston. Contemplating typing these volumes up into an electronic document, pdf for online circulation. I wonder whether i'd be in breach of any regulations were I to distribute the finished copy?

I can't comment on copyright issues, but if you do decide to digitise these volumes, you could photograph the pages, (or type them up if you want to},  make a pdf  and then upload to the Internet Archive.

 See my  GWF post  Upload your transcriptions to Archive.org (Internet Archive)

In particular, the most recent post, post 5, on 14 April 2018.

 

Cheers
