Huston was a Fort William Alderman in 1910 and 1911. An expert marksman and member of the Fort William Rifle Association and the 96th Lake Superior Regiment, Huston enlisted with the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry with the encouragement of Major General Sam Steele. This put him into the war, as a sharpshooter, almost a year before the local 52nd Battalion entered the fray. He was killed in action at La Bassee January 25, 1915.
