Camp Hospital 5

When all the Exhibition Camp was bustling with activity, and all its activities on display for the curious citizens of Toronto, even the hospital and its patients were under observation:

The hospital was the only zone of peace, and the convalescing patients in their blue suits loitered in the sunlight, a robin in the trees sang to them of a world that was ‘getting better’ and a distant bugle call reminded them of the call of duty ahead of them.(1)

So reported the Globe as part of its description of Sir John Hendrie’s visit to the Camp only a few weeks before Percy was admitted.
