Camp Gordon Johnston (Florida) POW Camp 1 Cent

Jan01&14

Camp Gorden Johnston is located in Carrabelle Florida.  The base trained soldiers for amphibious assaults such as were preformed on D-Day.  German and Italian POWs were moved to the base in March 1944.  The camp was the second largest in Florida with branch camps at Telogia, Dale Mabry Field, and Eglin Field.  Chits were not known from this camp until just recently when a partial book with a few 1 cent chits were discovered.
