H E Woodman was appointed an assistant patrol officer sometime in 1925 or probably 1926.
An ex-soldier from WW1 he served in New Guinea until WW2 when he was re-instated into the army as a Lt.Col.
He was found to be over-age & was discharged late in the war to return to New Guinea at DO Madang.

Harrold was a keen philatelist, & he assembled a huge stamp collection of New Guinea as well as posting a number of envelopes to himself as well as to other friends.

I have accumulated twenty two covers (envelopes) he dispatched during his service in New Guinea (& Papua).
Scans of twelve of these covers appear below.
