The Editor Speaks

Once more the troubled globe has moved round its orbit, leaving us in our Northern Hemisphere exposed less to the sun and more to the elements. New-comers to the camp will have heard countless rumours and stories of the terrible hardships they will have to undergo during the next six months and the M.O. has doubtless been genning up for his unusual lecture on frostbite. Thus it will become increasingly difficult to put the "accent on sport," especially as we-and the synthetic men- are growing too big for our Drill Hall. The swimming pool, too, will lose its popularity for, although the water will be warm, swimming in a balaclava seems to be taking it a little too far ...

"The Mount Hope Meteor" is the journal of No. 33 Air Navigation School, and is published nine times a year; more frequently in winter than in summer. It is run on a non-profit basis, grants from P.S.I. enabling a high quality magazine to be produced, and sold for fifteen cents.
This is essentially an airman's magazine, run by airmen. Contents consist of Station news, "gen," humour, cartoons, pictures, sport and topical articles. the Editor welcomes contributions, incentive being stimulated by the frequent competitions which are held.
The best way of keeping in touch with the latest camp developments is to buy the "Meteor" regularly from the Wet Canteen, Guard Room, Station Library, Barber's Shop or "Y" Office.
