Dorothy inside Ward 2, 1950

Dorothy was in the next bed to me and was a major influence on my life during the first couple of months. It was Dorothy who explained the cutlery to me. We had to tie bits of wool to the cups so that we had our own. One of the first initiations into life inside Craig-y-nos was to make all the new girls sing. This was decreed by the ward "boss", usually the oldest girl there. I was by far the youngest in the ward.
