Lieut. J.M. Drysdale, elder son of Mrs Drysdale, of the Driffold, Wickhamford, was wounded in an air-fight behind the German lines on August 26, and is, we are glad to hear, rapidly recovering. He received his wound when at an altitude of 2,000 feet, but managed his decent so skilfully that he alighted on the spot from which he started. He was warmly congratulated by his C.O. for his gallantry and skill.
