A Memory of Broadstairs

I think I might have been here in the 1950s, I was sent here after I left hospital with pneumonia and brochitis. I was sent there for 6 weeks. I remember they made you drink hot milk, yuk. My parents never came to visit, I think it was because they could not afford the fare from London W10. There was a song that all the kids used to sing, when I remmeber it I will post it on here. I was there wiuth another boy from Queens Park, London, and yes, we had to have a nap if it was nice, it was outside. They had a school attached so if you were old enough you went to school there. I also remember walking down to the beach with other kids...
