A few months into training the brothers along with the Winnipeg Grenadiers were posted to garrison duty in Bermuda and Jamaica. It is there, while stationed in the Caribbean, that John sketched 40 cartoons of military life that you know see on these pages November 1941 the Grenadiers were sent to defend the British colony of Hong Kong against the Imperial Japanese Army. On the morning of December 7, 1941 the Japanese invaded Hong Kong and during the next few days the Winnipeg Grenadiers along with other Canadian and allied force battalions, which were ill-prepared for battle, met their demise.
