At the Criterion Hotel tonight, Sergeant (to which rank he was promoted from corporal whilst on service) A.

The health of the guests was drunk with great enthusiasm, and Sergeant WILSON was presented with a gold chain and pendant, the presentation (from the Rangers) being made by Lieutenant Avenel A. Rogers, commanding the section. The toast of "Our Comrades" (Privates SEARLE, BOLTON, MULLER, and BOLWELL), still at the front, was drunk with cordiality.
Horsham Times, 23rd July 1901
The mayor, Mr Arnott, J.P., is making arrangements for the welcome home of returned soldiers hailing from Horsham and district who have served in South Africa. It is proposed to hold a monster welcome demonstration in the Mechanics' Hall and to present each soldier with a gold medal. Gunner JUDE returned to Horsham on Thursday and Corporal Harry EDE on Friday. Both are well and apparently none the worse for their experiences and moving adventures. A number of war mementoes and South African curios brought home by Corporal EDE are on view at J. Langlands and Co's store.
