Mary Richards (nee Driscoll) Craig-y-nos 1946-47

Mary from Swansea just rang. She has lot of memories. Here's some:

"During the blizzards in 1947 I was out on the balcony.
My Gran asked if it was right that we should be left out there in those conditions and she was told that it was part of the treatment.
I was kept in bed for the first 3 months. I had my tonsils removed and used to have a tube pushed down into my stomach. I dont know what for.

Dr Huppert, an Austrian woman doctor, a short woman with a limp petfried me. She was nasty. She shouted at me one day to get the two curlers out of my hair. I shall always remember that."
