I and who has been at Brighton hospital for some time, suffering from wounds received at the Dardanelles, returned home on Tuesday evening. He was accorded a rousing welcome, although he journeyed to Ystalyfera, and the local Scout band went to escort him home. Pte. Paddock is an old mem ber of the local troop. All wish him a speedy recovery. Pte. J. Whilock, of the Wiltshires, is also home from the Dardanelles, suffering from dysentry. He has also been in a home hospital for fourteen weeks.

Corcoran, of the 1st S.W.B. has now been discharged from the Army? He resides at Dumfries place, Wind road, and can be considered one of the heroes of Anzac.
