Children's Ward 1948 To 54

A Memory of Alton

Going into LMT hospital,every summer during school holidays to have operations on my,right hand which was webbed... Mixed memories of painful,operations - but kind staff and reading every Enid Blyton ever written I think...all provided for the children's use by the hospital... I envied the patients who were allowed to sleep on the balcony...int hose days parents were only allowed to visit on Sundays...so those fists were treasured and much looked forward to
