A 'Welcome Home' to the demobilised men of the parish of Hawthorn Village was held in the Council School on Friday. The Rector, the Rev. E. Picton, presided. Supper was provided, after which Dr. J.S.G. Pemberton presented 25 of the men, and relatives of seven who had made the supreme sacrifice, with a silver cigarette case, suitably inscribed. A picture, given by the Rev. E. Picton and Miss Picton, was also presented to each. A musical programme was given by Mr. Younger's party from Murton."
