Life Began .. - a Memory of Cuckfield.

I was born here in January 1956. I weighed in at 2lbs and measured just 10 inches and despite this I was a strong baby, no tubes for me, or so I'm told.
My sister remembers playing on a sunken lawn outside the unit while my Mum visited me, the nurse would hold me up to the window for my sisters to see me, her name was "Auntie" Jean Brown.
I was in hospital for about six months and my Mum continued to feed me, she would give her expressed milk to the Train Guard at Three Bridges and the hospital would collect it, I guess at East Grinstead.
