CORPORAL G. WAILES
The First to Return.
| The first Bermudian to arrive from the seat of war is Corporal G. Wailes who returned by the S.s. Claudiere having been discharged as physically unfit.
The Corporal has a story to tell which will be of a thrilling interest to us who have scarcely yet realised the storm and stress of war. He saw all the horrors of Ypres where he was wounded on November 17th. He was again wounded in March, receiving seven wounds in all, and went into Hospital in Birmingham, England, whence he was discharged as unfit to return to the front. His wife and child, who followed him to England, are still there, but he has come back to his native land having done his part in the great conflict, where we trust he may recover from his wounds of which he still bears traces. We shall publish Corporal Wailes’ experiences which we hope to hear in detail as soon as he has recovered from his voyage.
