John's Story

Posted Wednesday, November 10, 2010 by Kally83
My grandmother and her brother’s grew up on a small farm in Saskatchewan.

This particular story follows that of her younger brother, John, here shown with my great-grandmother.

During the Second World War, both John and my grandmother were stationed in England. John was a foot soldier and my grandmother was a telegraph operator.

While in England, John met the love of his life, Eileen. Despite it being war-time, they were married in 1942.

They spent two blissful years together before John was sent to the Front Lines........
