Dr Huppert and the visiting tortoise

May Bennett’s uncle brought a tortoise in to show the children in Ward 2 while she was a patient there in 1955.
“ He wrote about his visit in the local newspaper and Dr Huppert saw it. She was furious.
" She came in demanding to know who was responsible. She said if nobody owned up the whole ward would be punished. So I admitted it was my uncle.
He was sent for and he got a terrible row from Dr Huppert.”
