Wallah!!
Now I appear to have success, I was there 1956-1960 my name was D Wilson.
People remembered:-Matron Boyer, Sister Thompson (tutor) Dr John Seed. Miss Parks (catering) Mrs North(pharmacy)
Sisters:- Wright, Dalby(theatre) Smith, Baker, Prince-Pattenden, Tough, Edna Blenkin, Gooch, Moxon, Shaw,
Porters & domestic staff:- Meek(lodge) John Rushton, Harold Brough, Bud Waites, ?? Hood, Tilly, Winnie Stork.

Ted Dervey & Margaret, ? Milner, Jean Ogelby, Lillian Wroe, Thelma Arnold nee Weir( I was her bridesmaid) ? Sherburn, Evelyn Dennis, Dennis? Belle Woodmansy, Ruth Coates, Ruth Cooper. Eric Coville.
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!

I see Ev Dennis has just died, and Margaret Grandage died a few weeks ago. All the old ones disappearing,
