It is not owing to anything
that the returning soldiers may tell the public that their
adventures leak out, but in spite of that, some information
gradually seeps through that is of great interest.
For instance, Percy
Russell, who has just returned home, was wounded through the face,
and at the same time his brother Bert was completely buried.
The former, who was only
about 17 wen he enlisted, stayed in the place of danger until he
had succeeded in uncovering Bert and getting him away.
Other interesting details
of the young soldier's experience during the past two years will
no doubt be learned by all their friends.
Bert, who has been wounded
at least a couple of times, was returned to France some time ago.
Sergt. Adolph Sohier also
earned a silver medal for live saving while at his home in St.
Helier Island of Jersey, last summer, his sister participating in
the rescue, and her efforts also being recognized.
