"WIRRABARA FOREST, August 8.— Another returned soldier was welcomed home on Monday evening last. Tpr. F. Shuttleworth has returned after more than three years' active service with the Australian Light Horse in Palestine, where he took part in the great military movements which finally destroyed the Turkish armies. Mr F. R. Field presided, and Messrs. J. Watt, E. Pansie, A. Bateman, P. J. Curnow, and A. R Woodlands spoke in terms of welcome on behalf of forest residents. A programme of songs, recitations, readings, and band selections was carried through, and a gold medal was presented to the young soldier, who suitably replied. Capt. A. Watt responded on behalf of the returned men. A supper and dance followed. Gnr. Charlie Jenner returned home on Saturday, and will be publicly welcomed later." - from the Adelaide Register 18 Aug 1919 (nla.gov.au)
