from another Bn conducted the ceremony, but now is remaned to other Division and could not find out his name, as I never heard it. However I should be pleased to find out any information possible.

I have since visited his grave twice- a nicely shaped mound among many fellow comrades who sacrificed all, It was decorated with a few wild flowers we could find, and besides a neatly constructed wooden tomb piece created something of this nature. Across the centre piece is the words Pte. L. E. Johns #654 etc. Then in circular part is the words 58th Battalion Canadians. And below on upright is Killed in Action + date. While the whole stands on a square base. The whole thing is painted white and the words as described are painted black. It is exceedingly pretty and to all 58 men buried a similar one is erected. Of course different Bn's have different designs.
