Met in Southern India

Loughborough Echo 9th November 1945

Flight Sergeant Vic Orton, of Quorn, and Craftsman J. Straw, of Whitwick, recently met in a leave camp in the hills of Southern India.
They did not know each other previously, but found that they had many friends in the Loughborough district in common.
In a letter to the Loughborough Echo containing this news, Cfn. Straw says that they send their best wishes to all at home.

Prior to this, in the Loughborough Echo on 26th October 1945 the following item had also appeared:
