Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 8 June 27, 1945

Soldier News

Stan Lowe, in a recent letter to Huddy Williamson, writes that he is now permitted to say that he is in charge of a flotilla operating in the vicinity of the Andaman Islands.

He hears occasionally from Peter Mitchell in Italy, and from Peter Morris in England. It interested him considerably to read in a recent issue of Salient that he is expected home soon, but wants to know why someone does not tell him these things.

From an undisclosed source we hear that George Easy has been amusing himself lately with play production, and that there is every possibility that he will soon resume his interrupted association with the men's common room.

Old-timer Don Viggers is at present in and about Wellington on furlough. He had looked up a number of old VUC friends. He himself is looking in the pink.

T. P. McCarthy and K. D. W. Grant send thanks for chocolate received and consumed. Tony Langley also, and hopes that he will be back in person before the end of the year to (line up, girls!) thank the donors in person.

A letter thanking us for a cable of welcome is a newsy billet from R. C. Bradshaw. He will be remembered by the older students. He is back at a professional course after two weeks of glorious loafing in Cornwall, and hopes shortly for leave in Scotland and London (Join the Army and see the world!—Ed.) He has spent much of his time, meeting ex-VUC'S C. M. P. Brown, at the Board of Trade, A. T. S. McGhie, now a Town Clerk at Misheard, Cornwall, Mrs. Gwenda Whitty (nee Norman Jones), a very busy person at POW Section NZ House. Mrs. Claire Chapman (nee Longmore), wife of Dr. Oliver Chapman, one-time OU footballer and tennis player, and June Cummins at Fern-leaf Club. Both he and C. N. Watson had letters from Serge. R. J. Larkin in Italy, who, with John Carrad and he, used to wear worried faces while attending the birth of the earliest "Cappicade."
