    Toowoomba Chronicle (Qld. : 1917 - 1922) Thu 29 May 1919 Page 5 SOLDIERS RETURN. THE 1915 MEN WELCOMED. Running 20 minutes late, a special train conveying 110 soldiers who answered the call of Empire in 1915, when men were urgently needed, passed through Toowoomba late yesterday afternoon, and they received a cordial welcome from a large number of those who have their interests at heart. The mayor (Alderman T. S. Burstow) despite his multifarious duties attaching to the influenza epidemic, was on the platform, and he personally conveyed to each returnee the best wishes of Toowoomba, and the citizens' thanks for the part they played in the struggle. Mrs. A. Mayes (president of the Red Cross Society), together with a number of noble ladies, distributed cigarettes and other delicacies. Lieutenant F. Courteney, of New South Wales, an Anzac himself, who spent four years and two weeks on active service, was in charge of the train. A number of Toowoomba and Downs soldiers were aboard, including the following. SERGEANT PERCY ARTHUR. Surrounded by a circle of friends, Sergeant Percy ("Snowy") Arthur, who went away with the original 26th Battalion, was warmly welcomed. He was wounded no fewer than five times, all in France at the battle of Pozieres, at Malt Trench, at Moriancourt, and Mont St. Quentin, and in another stunt on the West Front.
