Merton Well first team would like an away game on November 21. Write to C. Weston, 16, Bank-avenue, Mitcham.
A boy of five, Leslie Caster, of Collingwood-rd., Mitcham, had an alarming experience on Wednesday evening — one he is not likely to forget. He was walking along Fox’s-footpath, Bank-avenue, when he chanced to pick up a disused petrol drum. The drum suddenly exploded, and the boy received the full shock in his face. He was taken to Mr. I. Martin’s, chemist, and first aid rendered until the arrival of the Mitcham ambulance. The boy reached Wilson Cottage Hospital, where he was found to he suffering from shock and burns on the face and head. He was detained in the children’s ward. A workman told the police that the drum had been emptied and evidently thrown away as useless.
