Storm Lake, Iowa—Jim Thomson, reported seriously wounded while operating with the Royal Canadian air force in England, suffered “multiple wounds in his right shoulder and left ankle” according to further word received by his mother, Mrs. Nan Thomson. Thomson, now in a hospital in England, had been piloting a heavy bomber on sweeps over Nazi occupied territory. His brother, Dick, left here this week with a Buena Vista county contingent bound for army service.
