A welcome home to voluntary aids who have served in the Middle East, Italy and the Pacific, was given by the V.A. executive committee in the Red Cross Society's rooms in Customs Street East recently. Mrs. P. J. North, advisory director, on behalf of the executive, said the society was proud of the V.A.'s fine record of service in hospitals and field stations near the front lines, and on hospital ships.
Other speakers were the Mayor, Mr. J. A. C. Allum, the president of the Auckland centre of the Red Cross, Mr. A. P. Postlewaite; chairman of the centre, Mr. K. C. Aekins, and the former chairman, Mr. G. T. Paterson. A spray was presented to Mrs. Allum by Mrs. J. A. East, the centre commandant. A roll of honour stood in front of the official table and will be inscribed with the girls' names.
