Playground at St. John’s (Perth, Ontario) dedicated to three local WWII soldiers

From Let Them Be Kids — St. John Catholic Elementary School, an account of the dedication of a new playground to “two local fallen Canadian Forces heroes and one local Veteran.” All three came from Perth (Lanark Co., Ontario); all three served in World War II. The two fallen soldiers are Flying Officer William Kyle and Corporal James Michael McGlade. The veteran (who happily returned from the war to marry a woman named Rose, with whom he raised a family of seven children) is Corporal Francis E. DiCola.

James Michael McGlade was the son of Patrick McGlade and Elizabeth Cahill.
