When the boys come home

One ex soldier was able to go back to his old job almost at once.


It has been splendid to welcome home half a dozen of our “boys” for their twelve days. … Will Ball’s “twelve days” have, we are delighted to know, been indefinitely extended. He has “come home” and we greet him warmly, and hope that in the coming happiness he may find an ample compensation for all that he has endured during his four years’ absence. The jobs he left in September 1914 are still open for him to re-enter.
