The colour-blind run-machine

Bill Ponsford was a run-machine. He found that he was colour-blind when he went to volunteer for the air force. He could not distinguish between red and green.

Doctor: "What colour did the new ball look to you?"

Ponsford: "Red".

Doctor: "What colour did it look after it became worn?"

Ponsford: "I never noticed its colour then, only its size."
