Roy Arnott, who has just returned from overseas, paid us a short visit; he is fairly mirthful, but has not completely regained himself. Roy transferred to the R.A.F. and while taking photographs over the German lines was hit in the right arm by an explosive bullet and forced to land. He then spent about three months in a German hospital as a prisoner of war. His arm sorry to say is not very good, he however is hopeful of it gaining more strength.
