"Known popularly in post-war years as the Anzac Hostel, Kapara, one of the biggest residences in Glenelg district, will soon become a soldiers' home again. The Red Cross Society announced yesterday ... that it was about to take over the property and use it as a home for convalescent members of the Second A.I.F.
