A lightly edited partial transcription of the Port Rowan column on page 10 of the 10 Apr 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

(Crowded out last week)

Privates Blake and Oscar Brown, who went overseas with the 133rd Battalion, arrived home last Sunday. Another brother, Private Lorne Brown, came home a few weeks ago.

These three young men are sons of Mr. and Mrs. Emerson Brown of this village. They are each married. 

They were in the thick of the fighting in Frances for months. Two of them, Lorne and Blake, have suffered from the effects of the war, but not of wounds. Oscar was unscathed.

They are receiving congratulations and a hearty welcome home from everybody.
