Am totally new here, so here's to hoping I'm posting in the right thread.
I'm trying to solve a mystery. I have this photo of a man in some sort of army uniform. I'm not sure who he is. He's not family or a relative, I once bought this picture somewhere because I loved the look of it, without knowing anything about it.
I'm trying to find out who he is. On the back of the photo it is written: J07881 or J01881, that is a bit unclear. I don't know much about searching for soldiers, but I have found that that must mean he was Jewish and was from Middlesex, and was in the army in WW1. Is that even correct?
However, I'm stuck. I've tried searching for his uniform, and I do find it to resemble the ww2 american paratroopers uniform. Then again, I don't know anything about these kind of things, and I might be completely off. I'm not even sure if the number on the back is real, or maybe something the seller of this picture once wrote down.
What do you guys think? I'm sorry about the picture being somewhat unclear, but maybe you have some more information. I'm completely intrigued by this!
Hoping to hear from you. Thanks!
