  • An unknown Canadian soldier who lay buried for decades in the Netherlands has been identified as an Alberta-born man killed in action as the Second World War drew to a close.

    And the search for his final resting place has reunited the soldier's relatives with the man who stood beside him on the battlefield as he died.

    Trooper Henry George Johnston's identity was confirmed under a program dedicated to identifying newly found skeletal remains and Canadian service members buried in nameless graves, the Defence Department said in a statement Monday.
