Lorne Christmas and George
A. Wingrove, both of Walsingham, two members of C Company of the
133rd Battalion, are back in Canada.
Both went to France in the
first draft from the county unit and Wingrove was probably the first
133rd casualty. He got a shrappel wound in the head, from which he
has not yet fully recovered.
Christmas got a bullet in
the chest and has so far recovered as to be discharged. He spent one
night in Simcoe last week and on his arrival at Port Rowan was met
by a reception party from his home village of Walsingham.
A few evenings after,
Wingrove followed him, but not being expected there was no reception
Sergt. Thomas Clancy of Port
Rowan, Pte. J. C. Casselton of Vittoria, Corp. Edwards of Simcoe,
and Pte. Nicols of Simcoe are reported in the daily press as having
arrived in Canada from the war areas.
