Johnstone WWI Role of Honour
We've recently received a copy of the Johnstone Role of Honour from World War I. Watch the site for an expanded presentation. If you are a relative or friend of one of the persons listed, we plan to add a photograph and biography for as many as possible; details on that procedure will be announced soon on these pages.

This would be a good time register as a member of the website. If you are a regular member of the History Society, we will also be linking the two member lists, and an annoucement of that procedure is also forthcoming.

This list was compiled by the late John Kenny J.P. who was a Committee Member of the Johnstone History Society. It is reproduced here by kind permission of his widow Mrs Agnes Kenny.

rees - Oct 15, 2017 at 1:07 PM wrote: J'town had about 12,000 residents in 1920. Extrapolating the loss ratio to the USA, it's as though they'd have had about 2,367,333 killed. That's over seven times the number of Americans actually killed in WWII.
