Earl Fader glad to be home on month’s leave

A happy reunion took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. Feder, 82 William St. N. when their son Driver Earl Fader, returned home after 14 months of service in England and in Italy.

Driver Fader was wounded some time ago and was invalided home recently from England where he received medical treatment for a wound received when a trench mortar bomb exploded blowing him off his motor cycle and causing injuries to his leg.

Driver Fader has been in the service for three years now and trained in Camp Borden along with a number of other Lindsay boys before going overseas.

I would like to say that my officers as well as my fellow troopers were very good to me and I might also state that in spite of the number of years the British people have been at war, their morale is very high.

I would like to see the country that will defeat them and the Germans may taste defeat at any time now said Driver Fader.

I might also tell you I had the pleasure of seeing Johnnie Eggleton another town boy while I was ‘over there’ and he certainly looks well. I also had the pleasure of meeting a number of other Lindsay boys but I am sorry to say that I cannot name them off-hand. It certainly is nice to see Canada again and I will enjoy my months leave. I sure hope to have a good time – no kiddin.
