His Chaplain wrote :
' May I add quite humbly my own tribute to the memory of Colonel Johnson.
We have had many a talk on his favourite topics and I have always been filled like everyone else with admiration at the iron and steadfast manner with which he soldiered.
Few young men today could weather the storms of campaigning as he uncomplainingly did.
He tought us lessons of utter devotion to duty, not least in his last great sacrifice, and grit, such as we're not likely to forget.'
Brigadier General Stewart , commanding the 33rd Divisional Artillery wrote ;
' I regret most deeply to have to inform you that your husband , Lieutenant Colonel Johnson , was hit this morning while in the forward duty.
I deeply regret to say he was killed.
Your husband died a gallant offier and gentleman , doing his duty in connection with his work , and one of his officers , Captain Rhodes ,was killed beside him.
The 33rd Divisional Artillery mourn with you for a comrade they admired and loved.'
