Ah how that takes me back. I dislocated my kneecap and had to go there - how was I to know that the Scout Jamboree was on in Sutton Park and I would have to wait behind a long line of Scouts who had not been prepared. Broken bones, part severed limbs, burns the lot - I was there for ages.

I hit a dog outside Shirley Odeon when riding my LE, sent me home on the Bus much to the surprise of the passenger on the No 8 and 13a buses.

Thankyou Astoness for another amazing photo,the memories of this hospital are endless.I stayed overnight with my son and spent hours talking to the matron,the tales she told me,one was the night someone stole an ambulance from outside the front door,the nurses kettles cups and anything that could be carried away were stolen the culprits were often children.Mary
