Veterans Have Returned Home – Number of Them were Victims of German Poison Gas

A party of Brantford soldiers returned home yesterday afternoon and were met at the depot by Secretary MacDonald of the Soldiers’ Aid Commission. All the members of the party were walking cases but had suffered more or less from the effects of gas poisoning. Raymond Girdlestone was probably in the worst condition of any of the party, but all were mighty glad to get back to good old Brantford once more. The party included the following:  Roy J. Kelso, 9 West Mill Street; Albert Bennett, Terrace Hill; R.M. Ross, Grandview; Raymond Girdlestone, 144 East Avenue; Robert Charlick, 148 Wellington Street; and F.J. Hooper, L. Shuert, Baldwin Avenue remained at Whitby hospital.
