Queen Elizabeth Hospital



Hi, I'm new to this site, and live at Aberystwyth. My connection with Birmingham is that I have an aunt that used to work at the QE Hospital. She retired in the mid 1970s having made the grade of Matron. Her name is Margaret Ann Jones. Does anyone remember her? She is now 93 years of age and is still as sharp as a razor!
Bye for now,

Why Black Prince?

Hi Alf, tywysog du is the name of a stallion I have. (You're quite right it does stand for black prince)
He won the first prize at the Royal Wesh show at Builth Wells in 2003.
He is a Welsh Cob and you are welcome to use him!
