Private L. Kingsley, 14th West Yorkshire Regiment West Indies Voyage With Emphasis on Jamaica - together with 7 Medals.
[1933-1934], [Jamaica] 1933 - JAMAICA: an Album With Original Photographs From an "Athletic" Officer - Includes 7 Army Medals. Photograph album compiled by a young, athletic officer identified as Private L. Kingsley while serving with the 14th West Yorkshire Regiment in the Defence of Jamaica. Included with the album are seven (7) army command sports medals earned by Kingsley from 1930 to 1935 whilst abroad, one earned in Jamaica and one in Baluchistan, the others unspecified. Medals are made by F. Phillips of Aldershot, all but one in their original cases as issued. Oblong quarto album, tri-colour string-tied boards, contains 215 black and white photographs, three (3) newspaper clippings, and two (2) ephemeral documents printed by the army. Photographs vary in size, the smallest approximately 4 x 6.5 cm and the largest 10.5 x 10.5 cm. LOVELY AND UNIQUE ALBUM WITH ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF JAMAICA. VERY ATTRACTIVE. The album captures Jamaica with excellent photographs as the regiment was part of the Jamaica Defence Force. Street views show original colonial buildings, early nineteenth century lorries, a tram, and horse drawn carriages for transportation. An interesting and scarce photograph features a Jamaican marching music band. At least one expansive plantation estate was visited, yielding an unusual image of the factory with wagons overflowing with hand harvested sugarcane. Approximately 70 photographs appear to originate in Jamaica, some possibly being from Bermuda. The album is dispersed with occasional photographs of army sporting events and Kingsley earning a plethora of medals and trophies, and concludes with group photographs of the regiment and portraits of family members, some of which are presumably H. Kingsley. vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) S.P. páginas [Attributes: Hard Cover]
