Pte. Sydney Hallimore

Bridgewater Bulletin, May 15, 1917.

A telegram was received Tuesday morning at 9:30 stating that Pte. Sydney Hallimore, recently invalided home, with the loss of a leg, would arrive by train. Steps were at once taken for a suitable demonstration. The 69th. band was called together, autos and teams decorated, and the school children and citizens marched to the depot. Pte. Hallamore was escorted around the town and then dined with his pastor, Rev. B.D. Knott. The band rendered several choice selections at the parsonage. Mr. W.H.S. Zwicker with his Overland conveyed him in the afternoon to his home at New Cornwall. We extend our thanks to the conductor for his thoughtfulness in notifying the agent at the depot.
