Charmion BS: hearing loss, tinnitus (26) RE: BS: hearing loss, tinnitus 07 Nov 19


Both my brothers were artillery officers (Canadian Army). Elder bro is quite deaf, despite having left the gun line behind before he turned 30. Younger bro served 22 years, much of it in air defence, a discipline that then involved firing the shoulder-mounted Blowpipe and the ever-popular Karl Gustav. From the time he joined the Militia at age 16, he was always so fastidious about hearing protection that the other gunners noticed, and at the age of 63 hears as well as I do though I should ask him about tinnitus.

Speaking of which, the cicadas are squealing in the key of X major today.
