“Returned Hero Welcomed Home. Private Tapp whose home is in this city, and who left here with the 39th Battalion, was wounded while on service at the front and was invalided home. He arrived here yesterday afternoon and was met at the G.T.R. station by relatives and friends, also by the bugle band and a detachment of the 155th Battalion, and escorted to his home on St. Charles street.

The returned hero is progressing nicely, and no serious results are anticipated from the wounds he received. Tapp is a married man and has resided in Belleville for some time.”

“Albert H. Green Killed in Action. Another of Belleville’s young men has given up his life in the defence of his King and country. In today’s list of Canadian casualties appears the name of Albert H. Green, a former resident of this city, as having been killed in action.

The unfortunate young man was of sterling qualities and a favorite with all who knew him, who will regret his sudden demise. Up to the time of his enlistment with the 34th Battery, the late Mr. Green was in the employ of Mr. John McIntosh, a merchant of this city.”

[Note: Driver Albert Henry Green died on April 4, 1916. He is commemorated on Page 94 of the First World War Book of Remembrance.]
