Footnote: John Irvine Crofton was born on June 2, 1892 in Toronto, Ontario. He was a resident of Toronto when he signed his Attestation Paper as a Private (868012) with the 182nd Infantry Battalion "Ontario County Battalion", on February 24, 1916, in Whitby, Ontario, at the age of 23, naming his next-of-kin as his father, John Straiton Crofton of Toronto, stating that he had no previous military service, that he was not married, that his religion was Church of England and that his trade was that of Manufacturer. One year after he enlisted and two and a half months before the 182nd Infantry Battalion went overseas, he was transferred from the 182nd Infantry Battalion to the Overseas Training Company, University of Toronto, Canadian Officers' Training Corps, on February 15, 1917. Private Crofton was discharged from service upon "his having been accepted as a Cadet in the Royal Flying Corps (in Canada only)", on April 17, 1917 in Toronto. The Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service merged to form the Royal Air Force on April 1, 1918, with Crofton later being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in the Royal Air Force. For his First World War service, he was awarded the British War Medal, as his service was only in Canada.
