Glen Asa Johnston, 1921-2004
Evelyn Johnston, 1923-1992
Orville "Bud" Johnston, 1925-1984
These are the 3 children that Cpl. Clifford "Ace" Johnston left behind - not by choice, as he died in 1926 from mustard gas poisoning from WWI. Glen Johnston is my father. Those smiles? They kept them throughout their lives. That's the way we remember them. They were always happy - especially when they were together.
I believe that this photograph was taken when they lived in Ottawa for a brief period of time as I recall Dad telling me about having a tent there in the back yard. There appears to be a stake, rope and a corner of a tent on the right side of the photo.
