A lightly edited item from page 1 of the Thursday 27 Mar 1919 Simcoe Reformer newspaper.

Capt. David D. Gunton, Ptes. J. W. McCarthy and 
C. Maxwell, of the 58th Battalion, shared in the welcome extended to the battalion in Toronto on Sunday and came to Simcoe in the evening, when friends and relatives met the 8.31 radial car to greet them.

Capt. Gunton is one of the three original officers on the 53th Battalion, and looks in fine trim after his duties in the battle region. He returned to Toronto yesterday.

Pte. Fred Slade of Simcoe, and Pte. H. W. Claringbold of Courtland, both of the 2nd Mounted Rifles, have returned, and John R. Darling has also landed in Canada.

One soldier for Delhi who came in Sunday evening on the last car was so anxious to get to his home that he refused all offers of hospitality for the night and set off on a 12-mile walk to get to his home.
