Colin Cresswell returning to duty—Shrapnel wounds

Many friends of Colin Cresswell, son of Mrs. Ursula Cresswell, Durham St. W., will be delighted to hear that he has sufficiently recovered from injuries that he expects to return to duty.

Colin Cresswell, who is a member of the Provost Company, was on duty when he received shrapnel wounds in the shoulder. According to a letter received by Mrs. Cresswell, her son still carries bits of shrapnel in the shoulder but they will not interfere with his resumption of duty.

The young soldier has been overseas for some time. He has been engaged in the southern part of England and has spent several weeks in a convalescent hospital.
