Mrs. Vera Luey, 19 Ontario Street, with four sons overseas, had the great satisfaction of welcoming home on Tuesday morning the Scottish bride of one of them - Arthur - who is with the army in Germany. Mrs. Arthur Luey, who was formerly Jessie Ure, is from the little town of Crossgates, near Dunfermline, in Fifeshire, Across the Firth, a matter of only a few miles distant is Edinburgh itself. ... Previous to her marriage young Mrs. Luey was employed in making munitions, having completed an engineering course to perfect her in her duties. ... On the boat with Mrs. Luey were 500 brides, of which it was estimated 100 were Scottish ... After her husband's return Mrs. Luey expects they will make their home here. Being used to life in a small town she sees no reason why they should not be able to settle down quite comforatebly in Grimsby. Leslie and Lyle, twin sons of Mrs. Luey Sr. are now in Scotland. She looks for their homecoming in the near future. The two have not been separated since their enlistment, except at the time of the Dieppe raid. Following that engagement their amazement and satisfaction was great when shortly afterwards they found themselves in the same prison camp, once more together even though under duress.
