Johnstone WWI Role of Honour
We've recently received a copy of the Johnstone Role of Honour from World War I. We plan to add an album with biographies for as many as possible; details on that procedure will be announced on these pages.

UPDATE 7 March 2019: We have updated our World War 1 Role of Honour list that you will find at the page linked below.

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 announcement of that procedure is also forthcoming.

If your ancestor or relative appears on the list or if you know of another person who should be included, we would be pleased to receive a photograph, a descriptive comment or biography and suitable documentation to accompany this research. Please use the contact form to submit information.

The base 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.

A stunningly long list of 268 names. It must have been a time of immense public grief.

J'town had about 12,000 residents in 1920. Extrapolating the loss ratio to today's 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 and larger than the current population of all but our four largest cities.
