MFair, another wonderful bit revealed about our Jericho. A man of mystery to be sure!
Fullofit, I hope Gaston can get his regular gunner/obs back soon. It does not sound as if SLt. Roza is a fan of the Sergent.
2nd Lt. Swanson is on his way back to camp from No. 10 Stationary Hospital in St. Omer where he has been since his wounding on the 6th. Even though his left side still hurts like the devil he has been cleared to return to flying duty, and he is thrilled for the news as he was beginning to go mad laying about in the ward. Before he left he was visiting with his G/O, Lt. Christopher Dent, and was very pleased to find that he was doing far better than first expected. When the surgeon went in to retrieve the two bullets in his right shoulder it was discovered that one was pressed tight against the main nerve. Once removed it was but a day or two later when Christopher started to regain feeling in his arm, hand, and fingers. As of this morning the stout fellow is now able to use his hand again and can actually raise his arm an inch or two. The doctor is now predicting that, with adequate rest and recovery, Lt. Dent should be able to return to his regular duties at some point in the future. For now though he is to be sent back to England for at least six weeks, which means of course that Swany will be working with a new G/O on his return to Auchel. The young pilot is fine with that as he is beyond pleased that his former flying partner will make a full recovery.
