Nurses photographed in 1952

By Ken Ross

This photograph was taken in the small garden that used to be at the rear of the operating theatres. The two nurses I can name in the photographs with me are Dalby and King, this was about May 1952.

I worked as a volunteer at the County for over two and a half years from 1949-1952, mainly on Vallance Ward when Sister Tooky was in charge. As time passed I worked on many of the wards, particularly in the evenings, packing the dressing drums for autoclaving.

If there are any ex-RSCH nurses from that time and into the later 1950s and 1960s, please do share your memories by posting a comment below.

My Dad worked at the RSCH as a porter, doing nights. He went for a temporary job after the War and stayed until he retired in the 1970s. He was commonly known as 'Joe' back then and I'd love to hear from anyone who worked with him. Sadly he's no longer with us.
