Pte. W.A. (Bill) Cameron Recovering from Eye Injury

Fragments from Exploding Shell Cause Temporary Blindness

Mr. and Mrs. Ed Cameron of Burnt River have just received further word from their son, Pte. W.A. Cameron, (Bill) who was recently wounded while serving in active service overseas.

He writes he was serving with the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders in France and that fragments from an exploding shell injured his eyesight to the extent of causing temporary blindness but that he is now able to see quite well again and is on the road to recovery.

Another brother, Rod, is also serving and is reported in good health.
