Two Veterans Returned Home

Three men, back from the front, were expected in the city yesterday, but so far as the Soldiers’ Aid Commission was able to ascertain only two returned, they being Lance-Corp. S.F. Pizzey, 25 Sheridan Street, and Pte. F.W. Pearce, 340 Dalhousie Street. Pte. W.J. Hurley, who some time ago suffered the loss of an eye, was also expected, but apparently did not arrive. Corp. Pizzey had been shot through a lung. Both men looked well. A delegation from the Soldiers’ Aid Commission met the 3.52 G.T.R. train which brought the heroes back. A number of returned men who were at the front with Pte. Pearce, had a patriotically decorated automobile to meet them at the train. The returned heroes were ushered into the station when the train arrived, and in the presence of a big crowd Ald. J.S. Dowling, ex-Mayor J.H. Spence and Chris Cook welcomed them home.
