A Memory of Alton

I was in hospital from January 1963 for 6 months to have my right leg stretched, it didn't totally work, but it was in 1966/1967 when I had to have several operations for the other leg. Although it was my first time away from home everyone seemed to help each other. The snow drifts didn't bother anyone much, the Solent had ice floating in it. Does anyone remember Pammy, Emily and Cathy? They were also patients in ward 7. I remember Mrs Horsforth, she was a cleaner who liked Frank Ifield. Miss Coates worked there too, and Fred the porter.
