Son of Francis & Jane Sophia Bulkeley-Johnson. Charles Bulkeley Bulkeley-Johnson (1867 –1917) was a British and Egyptian Army officer who served in the Mahdist war and the First World War.
He is somewhat famous in Russia for been the only foreigner during WWI — among a very small company of Russians — to receive the Russian Imperial Order of St. George Cross both IVth and IIIrd class for his outstanding personal bravery. He was born in 1867 & was educated at Harrow School and graduated from the Royal Military College, Sandhurst.
For his exploits he has been awarded the two Crosses of the Russian Order of St. George — which makes him the only Allied Officer during WWI ever to achieve such a level of recognition
Officer of the Legion of Honour (France), Order of St. George 3rd Class (Russia), Order of the Medjidie 4th Class (Turkey).

During the Great War Frank saw service on the Western Front in 1914 and in Gallipoli during 1915-16 and on returning from that disastrous adventure took a safe staff job for a time. Safety and staff jobs were, however, not for him and he asked to return to the front line. In 1917 he was in action once more and survived the horrors of trench warfare during the spring and summer. By December he was an acting Lt. Colonel in command of a Service battalion of the Rifle Brigade having won a DSO earlier in the year. On 23rd December he and his Adjutant were approaching the front at Passchendaele Ridge near Ypres when they were both killed by a shell.
