Seamans Hospital - a Memory of Tilbury.

I was just boy at the age of 6 when I was admitted to Tilbury Seaman's Hospital to have my tonsils taken out. I can remember seeing the big funnels of the ships through my ward window at the end.
The wards were long, big and white with high ceilings, I remember being very sad when my mum and dad had to leave me, until the next day. I also can remember the ship's bell and pictures of many ships around the place. I was born in Vange in 1960 the 14th April, my mum died in 2010 and our house was sold. I still live in the area of Noak Bridge - a Basildon boy through and through.
