The Soldiers Return : No. 2 Company of the 42nd Regiment, 1914


Carleton Place Herald

Tuesday, June 30, 1914


No 2 Company of the 42nd Regiment arrived home from Petawawa on Friday afternoon last, with Lieut. W. H. Hooper in command.


The boys, while sunburned and travel-strained, moved with a regularity and precision which spoke well for the work of Col. Serg’t McDougall. The 42nd were personally congratulated in camp by H.R.H the Duke of Connaught on their excellent showing on the three days trip to Chalk River. Corporal Brown and Pte. Leakie qualified as two of the best shots in the regiment, while Serg’t Watson upheld the company’s good name in the sporting events.


On arrival at their hall the company dispersed for the year, after cheers for their company, commander and also for Serg’t Major Henry.
