A lightly edited transcription of a page 9 item in the 24 Apr 1919 Simcoe Reformer.

Sergt. Gordon Butler, 14th Battalion, got to town on Monday. His battalion came in on the Carmania.

If nothing happens he will help to print this issue of The Reformer today and will resume his regular duties on the Reformer staff next week.

He should come back with renewed vigor, for there must be 25 pounds more of him than there used to be.

He says that some 240 members of the 133rd Battalion were drafted to the 14th; out of this number not more than 15 came home with the unit. Almost all the others were casualties.

Among those who came home were:
Pte. Geo. Bantam
Lance-Corporal G. C. Barnes
Lieut. Roy Collver
Signaller L. Knowles
Pte. W. Robinson
Pte. Chas. Sherman
Pte. C. C. Smithson
Pte. Melvin Wheeler
Pte. Jas. Wilson
Pte. W. Winters
