This obit was forwarded to me thanks to Lilyan, a stalwart researcher on the MENARY list. January 30, 2006. I have a hunch that it connects to the photo beneath. It also goes a long way to explain the links between the MENARY families of Orangeville and Toronto.

Grand Valley newspaper,
The Star & Vidette, dated August 13, 1942:
 Word has been received of the passage at his home, Fareham, Hants., England, from a heart attack, of Major John Menary C.B., O.B.E., M.D. He  was born at Knockanea, Killylea, N. Ireland, and was educated at Armagh   and Dublin University, graduating in medicine. He joined the British Navy, doing service at most of the British ports. During the last war he was decorated for distinguished service at Galipoli. Returning to  England he had charge of the naval hospital at Portsmouth. At the outbreak of the present war, although on the retired list, he again offered his service and was engaged on the staff at Portsmouth.   Surviving are his wife, Constance Bell Menary; a brother, Alexander Menary, N. Ireland; a niece, Anne Menary, wife of Major Prescott, M.D., of the Indian Army. George Menary, writer and author, now residing in Scotland, and the Menary families of Orangeville and Grand Valley are  cousins.
