An unexpected meeting of two brothers on the battle front is reported by Mr. and Mrs. R. Eason, of Norland, Ont. Sgmn. Gordon Eason, who has seen considerable action in various engagements met his brother, Tpr. Orval Eason, in or near Germany. A letter received by the parents said that Gordon was riding his motorcycle when he saw his brother working on a car. They were so surprised that, for a moment, they were speechless.


Gee, were we ever happy to meet! We didn’t know what to say for awhile, wrote Orval.
