Cpl. Chynoweth of Norland, had Arm Amputated

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chynoweth of Norland, Ont., have been saddened by the official word they received to the effect that their son Cpl. Earl Carlton Chynoweth was seriously wounded on July 18th somewhere in France and since being admitted to the hospital has suffered the amputation of his right arm which was shattered by bomb fragments according to official information.

Capt. Chynoweth was born on a farm at Dongola, Ont., where he received his public school education, afterwards moving with his parents to Norland. He entered the Ordnance Corps in February 1942 and received his training at Toronto, Brantford and Camp Borden. In England he was transferred to the Royal Regiment Medical Corps as a stretcher bearer and was on duty a short time in France as a stretcher bearer when he received his injuries.
