Show Your Father's Medals for Father's Day


Recommended Posts

No medals for Lieutenant John Thomas Johnson.

 

He tried to enlist for active service in November 1941, but the M.O. opined that to pass him for active service would render him liable to a charge of giving "aid and comfort to the enemy", and so graded him C-1. His eye test showed 20/200. He served with the Reserve battalion of The Ontario Regiment in Oshawa, being commissioned in 1942, allegedly because the Officers wanted fresh blood for their poker school.
