A Surgeon In Arms by Robert James Manion (1881 - 1943).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/a-surgeon-in-arms-by-robert-james-manion/
Robert James Manion (1881-1943) was a Canadian doctor who volunteered in the Canadian medical corps during World War I. This book is his memoir of the war. After the war he entered politics and served in several Canadian governments. The listener may note a lack of mention of the United States soldier; this is because the memoir was written before the entry of that country into the war. ( David Wales)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/58233
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

As I began recording, I realized that most of the chapters are quite short, so I decided to put 2 chapters together, aiming at 25 to 30 minutes or so. So we will have extra lines in the mw when we finish up.

0-1 PL OK.

Deleting rows is very easy. A lot easier than adding them.

Kelly's words in ch 4 were a challenge. I certainly could not do a true Irish brogue but I tried to reproduce what the author wrote. Some of it seems a bit hard to understand but I think I will let it stand, unless you find something truly egregious.
