Two Veterans Have Returned – Privates Aldred and Fennell Were Welcomed to Their Old Home

At least two returned soldiers arrived in the city last evening. About 6.30 Mr. George MacDonald, secretary of the Soldiers’ Aid Commission, received word that several men would arrive on the G.T.R. at 7.32. In all eight men were expected back, so he hurriedly gathered together a number of the members of the commission and four automobiles and met the train. A number of the members of the Great War Veterans were also at the station with their cars. Only two men, Privates Aldred and Fennell arrived on the International Limited, and they were taken to their homes after they were welcomed. It is thought that some more returned veterans arrived over the T.H.B.
