When the war was over, the Ernests both spent a week a week in Paris and were then shipped home. I canít imagine what a shock it must have been for them to go from the horrors of the battlefield to the delights of Paris and then home. They would have been much different than the boys who set off idealistically years before. It seems that not much fuss was made of the returning heroes, who presumably either went back to school or looked for a job once they were back in their native lands, just got on with it.
