Salisbury Hopes Robert Yancey Among 3,114 Who Landed in New York City, Feb. 5, 1919

From The Carolina Watchman, Salisbury, N.C., Feb. 5, 1919. “A Home Newspaper Published in the Interest of the People and for Honesty in Governmental Affairs.”

The White Star Line Celtic arrived in New York last Sunday from Brest, bringing 3,114 American officers and men from overseas, and consisted of the entire personnel of the first gas regiment, the only offensive gas troops employed by the American Expeditionary Forces. 

Robert Yancey of this city was a member of this gas regiment and is expected home soon. Robert is one of the best known Salisbury boys in the service and is the son of R.B. Yancey.
