The doctors at Craig-y-nos

Dr Ivor Williams

(Unknown) Young doctor at Craig-y-nos

Found these two photographs in Sylvia Cottle’s album. I recognise Dr Ivor Williams but who is the other one?

Let me know if you can put a name to him.

I remember Dr Williams with a particular fondness, not that we saw much of him except once a week on the infamous Wednesday morning “Long Rounds” when we would sit in our chairs, if we were up, or lie motionless in bed with sheets tucked in and lockers immaculate until Dr. Williams and Dr.Huppert escorted by Sister Morgan had completed their weekly morning round.

One day Dr williams tickled me behind my ear. It seemed such a totally unexpected friendly gesture that it stuck in my mind. I was 9 years old.

What do you remember about the doctors? do you have a story to tell? if so email me at:
