A lightly edited news report on page 12 of the 3 Apr 1919 Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

J. Burlington Rigg, who went overseas as Signaller Sergeant of the 133rd Battalion, and who won a Lieutenant's commission, then promotion to a captaincy, got back to Simcoe yesterday.

Capt. Rigg is not exactly a Simconian, but during recruiting days here he made many friends who are delighted to see him looking so astoundingly fit.

If there is one thing more than another that stands out particularly clear about our returning soldiers, it is that those who were lucky enough to dodge gas and bullets fairly exude health and wholesome looks. Capt. 
J. B. R. is a shining example of this fact.
