100 Years Ago: Thomas Yateman Reaches Quebec

The Intelligencer May 17, 1916 (page 7)

“Pte. Yateman Enroute. Word has been received from Quebec that Pte. Thomas Yateman, artillery, who was wounded in the spine about a year ago, and is still partly paralyzed, is being brought home with an officer in charge, and will arrive in Belleville to-morrow afternoon on the 2:15 C.P.R. train. He will be taken to the General Hospital from the station.

Everyone who can should make it a point to meet the returned hero, and give him a rousing reception to welcome him home, and show their appreciation for one who has ‘done his bit’ for his country. Pte. Yateman’s father and brother are both members of the 155th Battalion.”
