Eagle Squadron Signature Help


Recommended Posts

I have a Taylor Eagle Squadron painting the has two signatures, but one I can't seem to ID.

I've looked over rosters of 71, 121 and 133 Sqdrn's, but can't make sense of this one.

Any Eagle Squadron experts out there have any ideas?

Looks like "Johnnie Johnson", later Air Vice Marshal James Edgar Johnson. His signature varied over the years, but the "s" in Johnson is distinctive.

I think you are totally correct!

I looked at his signature on line after your posting and I agree, slight variation, but also many consistencies.

This also explains why I couldn’t find a match on Eagle Squadron rosters.

It’s tough when you are looking for a name using a tough to Id signature, very glad you recognized it.

By the way, the other signature on the painting is James Goodson.

Thanks again JB!

Both Goodson and Johnson were prolific signers. Goodson was in the aviation art print business for a number of years in the UK. Since he knew the Eagles and most of the other aviation personalities, he was able to get some high-speed autographs regularly.
