After the War, John returned to Granard, but worked as a labourer in Dublin for a time.

According to the Longford Leader, Pte Carlon served with the Leinster Regiment, 6th Battaltion, and was with them in Gallipoli, where he was wounded and seemingly lost his arm, (Longford Leader of the 2 October 1915). Sonny's brother William Carlon, also served in the war. It is difficult to ascertain the Carlons' regiment and regiment number as their records appear to have been destroyed during World War 2.

Parents Names: Son of John Carlon, Granard.
