This is my Uncle Cliff and his wife Betty in WW II.  Clifford Vernon Faulknor(1913 – 2010) was the son of John/Jack Vernon, local vaudeville actor and Alice Emily(Elsie) Vernon(nee Foxwell).  In WW II, he was a “sailor in the Army”….ie: he was an engineer on board several of the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps vessels that operated on the B. C. Coast, supplying the various RCAF and other miliary stations.  He attended UBC and got his degree in Agriculture and was employed as an Agrologist doing land use surveys for the B. C. Government.  On the side, he wrote historical articles for the weekend Times Colonist and, when W. A. C. Bennett eliminated the land use department, he took up writing full time.   He wrote several children’s books, biographies, did ghost writing and was the Calgary-based Editor for a Canadian farm magazine for several decades.  In his retirement, he took up painting.
