Corporal WH Perrin, eldest son of Mr. and. Mrs. George Perrin, of Coronation Street, Darfield, has just received his discharge, after having served three years and three months in the Army.

Corporal Perrin went out to Egypt with the Expeditionary Force, and returning to France was wounded in the big push on July 1, 1916, in the arm and leg.

He has been treated in various hospitals in England, and finally received his discharge last week.

Previous to enlistment he was on the clerical staff at Houghton Main, and is expecting to resume his former occupation.
