About this memory

5. I went on to find out about John’s five brothers and their war service. Two – George and James – had emigrated to Canada but joined up with Canadian forces at the outbreak of the war. They served in various sectors in the European conflict and both received severe wounds at Ypres resulting on them being invalided home to Canada.
