First Stay In Infirmary

A Memory of Blackburn

I was 8 years old when on November the 5th I was not at all well. My mum was at work in the cotton mill in Lower Darwen, my sister and brother were out at the bonfire across the street, Dad was sitting with me. Mum finished work at 10pm and came home to find me very distressed. In the early hours of the morning I was taken to the Infermary. It was appendicitis, I remember it well. I was told that I was the youngest person to be admitted into the Infirmary with appendicitis.
