Another Dr Huppert story...

I have just heard a passable imitation of Dr Huppert on the phone!

During my interview with Gaynor Morgan who entered Craig-y-nos as a 5 year old in 1954 I ask her if she remembers the Austrian woman doctor.

She roars with laughter.
“The nurses used to stand me on a chair to do an imitation of Dr Huppert!”
She gives a demonstration.

It’s uncanny. It’s 50 years or more since I heard the deep guttural voice of Dr Huppert in her broken English admonishing children: “you must not do must not do that..”
