  • Malcom was a much loved brother of my grandfather Eric William Johnston. He named my father Barry Malcolm after him and Malcom has continued as a middle name for 3 generations. Sorry you died so young fighting for us on the other side of the world. I will get to Ypres one day to see the land you last saw. RIP Melissa Johnston
