“Unfortunately, only one brother would travel home after the war. John was struck off
strength of the 18th Battalion to be transferred to England on January 6, 1919. Upon returning
home, John carried on a “normal” life; he married, joined the Toronto Police, and had children.
However, he was often frightened by loud noises and sudden shocks, a side-effect of shelling in
the trenches. He also suffered from pain in his side and back caused by shrapnel that could not be
removed. John died on April 16, 1950 in Toronto.”
