We worked hard, on nights I remember pulling the coal in to the black iron stoves on a bumper cloth, and the dawn chorus from the cemetery next door!! It's a different world now and the technical side of medicine is almost unrecognisable, but ERGH covered a large area & it was only intended as a temporary Hospital, it served the people well , Part 3 was a different issue, any more memories anyone!
