Mary Gordon 1955

Mary Gordon from Worcester rang. She had just received the newspaper cutting about the Patients Reunion and she said how sorry she was to miss it.

Mary was a in Craig-y-nos as a 12 year old. She was the eldest of three children and came from Neath and she has an extensive album from her time there. It includes a photo of the robin being fed on the bed.

She remembers Dr Huppert giving her regular skin tests to see if she had TB.
" She was very rough with my arms. I remember that."

Every Sunday, she says, we had ham for breakfast."It was lovely, I remember that. The rest of the food was not up to much."
