Friends and Relatives of Sgt. Jim Conley anxiously awaiting further word.

A telegram dated at Ottawa May 9 was received by Mrs. Chas. Woodley Albert St. S. Monday morning to the effect that her nephew Sgt. Jim Conley 21 year old son of Mr. Hubert Conley of Peterboro formerly of Lindsay was seriously wounded on active service on May 5th and on May 8th was in a critical condition in a hospital Somewhere in England.

Just last Saturday his father had received a letter from him in which he said he had reached his ambition that of attaining the rank of gunner on a Lancaster bomber. A cable from Jim arrived shortly after the telegram with a birthday greeting to his father.

Mr. Conley and his youngest son Jack, and the Woodley family and other friends are anxiously awaiting further word. They are grateful that Jim is on British soil and they know he will receive all that modern medical science has to offer.
