Sgt E Collett, of the Canadian Engineers, is in he Heatherdene Hospital as the result of an accident. He was saw milling in France, when, as the result of an accident, in connection with the circular saw, he was injured in the hand. Sgt Collett came over with the first Canadian contingent. He was then at the Remount Depot, and he was one of a party picked out for special work.
