  After spending about two years overseas, Sgt. Earl Crimmons, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Crimmons, 20 John St, arrived home Monday morning.
  Sgt. Crimmons informed The Post that he has a 30-day furlough which he intends spending at home with his wife and parents.
  "I only got as far as the German border when I left for home," said Sgt. Crimmons.
  Since going to Europe he has served in England, France, Holland, Belgium and Germany.
  Sgt. Crimmons departed for overseas as a member of the 6th Anti-Tank Bty., and returned to Canada still a member of that unit.

Notes:
This card is part of a larger collection of World War II personnel clippings. The project began in 1944 at the Lindsay Library. The intent was to gather together as much information as possible on the military record and the service of people from the Town of Lindsay and the County of Victoria (now Kawartha Lakes) who served in the war. To that end, during the years 1944, 1945, and 1946, members of the public donated photographs and updated information about their loved ones. Both library staff and the public saved and donated newspaper clippings. Some of the files contain great amounts of detail, while others have just a name.
