Eric Alexander (Sandy) Johnston – Section 1

This section contains two photographs taken on October 2, 1937, at Louisbourg, NS, when the Cape Breton Highlanders militia provided a Guard of Honour for Lord Tweedsmuir, the Governor General of Canada. The event was the official dedication of the Louisbourg Museum. The informal photos showing men from the Cape Breton Highlanders were probably taken after the official ceremony.
