LONG SERVICE MEN
Long service men in the draft of returning soldiers to Auckland by the troopship Ruahine:
CUNNINGHAM, Lt Col W H, DSO
ACLAND, Lt Col H T D, CMG
HUTCHINSON, Major G R
CAMPBELL, Pte N
Mrs Gladys HENNING, Auckland, who has been in charge of the NZ Motor Transport Dept at Hornchurch for the past 20 months, also returned on the Ruahine.
One of the saddest sights seen at the ‘boarding’ of the draft of returned soldiers which arrived at Auckland on Monday, was that of a blind man signing the necessary papers. This soldier was guided along the line by a kindly Major who acted as the soldier’s eyes but the officer could not sign the man’s name. He held the papers, however, and helped to guide the hand which moved in what was for the soldier, endless darkness. The sight was a touching one and more than one observer turned hurriedly away.

Notification of the receipt of military honours by two soldier teachers was received with pleasure by members at the last meeting.
