WWII England Wounded Airman

Nineteen-year-old Royal Air Force radio-man William Cruickshank, who received a machine-gun bullet in the jaw while at his post in a bomber flying over the north sea is shown in hospital, Jan. 4, 1940, with his fiance, Lavinia Craig, 21. The radio operator, who realized he had been shot only when he felt the hot metal in his mouth and spat it out, is being treated by plastic surgery in order that he will not be left with scars.
