BAFFIN ISLAND The Canadian Army yesterday released photos taken by paratrooper Capt. Guy D'Artois which gave for the first time an "eye-witness" picture of the dramatic Arctic rescue of Canon John H. Turner. Typical view of the rugged landscape around Moffet Inlet on Baffin Island gives idea of why aerial rescue was so difficult. [Canon Turner was an Anglican missionary who had been critically wounded in a shooting accident at his isolated mission at Moffet Inlet on Baffin Island, an outpost approximately 450 miles within the Arctic Circle. Canon Turner died December 9, 1947 from his injuries.]
