Lindsay Brothers Play Part in Big Engagements Overseas
Hector Blair on long leave here. His brother Charles in hospital in Italy.
Proudly bearing four service stripes, Hector Blair is again in his native land and in his native town, Lindsay.
One of the first to enlist here, Hector spent his 1st war Xmas on the ocean and had been overseas ever since till embarking a short time ago for home. He arrived here on Wednesday for a well earned, long leave. He spent a year in Italy and was in the hospital in North Africa with malaria.
A brother, Chas. Blair, known as "Pud" Blair is at present confined to the 15th General Hospital in Italy with an injured foot. He will be there for a month and later will have to spend two weeks and possibly a month in a convalescent depot. He has been in Italy over a year with the 4th Field Ambulance Corps.
Both are sons of Mrs. Milton Blair, 142 Lindsay St. S., and are well known in town. The two boys were together for a considerable length of time last spring.
Both were in the Hitler line, both were in the Gustav line and both were in the Sangro River engagement.
