Home from England, sees son first time

A two-year-old son he had never seen and a happy, wife greeted Sgt. Major Ray Gemmill, RCA, of Melbourne street, Lindsay when he arrived home from England late Saturday night. While aware that her husband was being invalided to Canada, Mrs. Gemmill had no information that he had even sailed before his surprise arrival.

Only 26 years of age Sgt.-Major Gemmill returned a real army veteran as he first enlisted with the 45th Infantry Regiment at Lindsay when only 16 years of age and has been connected with the army ever since. In 1937 he was promoted to Sergeant with the 45th Field Battery and when that unit went active on September 3rd 1939 he enlisted the same day. He went overseas in November 1941.
