Salonika watercolours for sale

I keep a regular eye on items for sale on eBay with a Salonika connection. It’s usually just postcards and bits of Zeppelin but, every now and again, something unusual and exciting pops up. And that’s the case now, with a small collection of watercolours from 1918 connected with 38th General Hospital, showing views near Salonika:

  • D.G.P., Mount Olympus, Greece, Salonica Front WW1 – 1918 watercolour painting
  • D.G.P., Mount Olympus, Greece, Salonica Front WW1 – 1918 watercolour painting
  • D.G.P., Hospital Tents, Salonica Front WW1 – Original 1918 watercolour painting
  • D.G.P., Mount Olympus, Tennis Court, Salonica Front WW1- 1918 watercolour
  • D.G.P., Tennis Court, Salonica Front WW1 – Original 1918 watercolour painting

The paintings are on sale on a ‘Buy It Now’ basis, rather than the more usual auction from Somerset & Wood Fine Art.

Does anyone know who D.G.P. is? Are there more of his paintings out there?
