L-Cpl. Colin Cresswell writes home re: wounds

Mrs. Ursula Cresswell, R.N., town, has just received further direct word as to the nature of her son's injuries.

It will be recalled that on Thursday of last week, she was advised that her son, L.-Cpl. Colin, had been injured in a blast while serving in France. The letter she has just received is from him personally and states that he is now in hospital in England and is suffering from shrapnel wounds to his left shoulder. He writes he is improving satisfactorily and receiving the very best medical attention.

Lindsay and out-of-town friends will be pleased to read this latest information on L.-Cpl. Colin Cresswell’s welfare since being wounded.
