Promoted Corporal, 18 July 1917.
Admitted to 65th Casualty Clearing Station, Jerusalem, 10 May 1918 (accidental injuries, dangerously ill); died of injuries, 11 May 1918.
Court of Enquiry, 20 May 1918, found that he 'died as a result of the accident which happened in the performance of military duties, the accident being due to the following cause: failure of the brakes due to the faulty Cotter pin in foot brake.' Court also recorded its view that the Cotter Pins in Ford cars 'were not strong enough in cases of emergency'. Witnesses told how the car in which Johnston was travelling between Jericho and Jerusalem went over an embankment to avoid another vehicle, and its brakes failed.
