Cartoonist Injured

Friends of Charles (Chuck) Carew who first worked in the Stationery Dept. and then in Took Drafting, Genelco, before joining the R.C.A.F. will be interested to know that he is in a hospital in Scotland. Chuck had plural pneumonia and after being out of the hospital one week had the misfortune to faint and fall off a ladder so is again in the hospital with a broken ankle. Chuck may well be remembered for his clever cartoons that appeared in the Gun Shots every week before he enlisted.
