Colin Jardine Ward

A Memory of Alton

Hello,
I worked on Colin Jardine ward at Treloars 1968- 1969.The ward sister was Sister Marie Tarr.I moved back to Wales in 1969 but still try and visit Alton most years as we have good friends there.I remember a patient called Barry who came from Guernsey, having his 21st birthday whilst a patient on the ward, we took him to the Indian restaurant in Alton, which I think is still there. Very happy memories there.
