David Pearce - St Brides hospital, 1947-52

David Pearce just rang with his story.

He was in St Brides hospital with TB in the leg in 1947 as a 11 year old. He was there until 1952.

He has written a book ( self-published) about his experiences and says that on the whole his time there left him with many happy memories. He remembers on one occasion the boys bought stink bombs through the Beano magazine and let them off one night...

He organised the first reunion in 2002 and over 100 people turned up. Now he has them annually and the next one will be on the weekend of May15-17.

David lives in Preston and before he retired worked for British Rail- in the complaints department.
