Fifty years on: Children of Craig-y-nos- book launch
(from left to right) Christine Perry ( nee Bennett), Valerie Brent ( ex- nurse) and Beryl Richards ( nee Rowlands)
Christine has just forwarded me this photograph taken at last Friday's book launch so I thought it would be fun to put in photos of the time when they were in Craig-y-nos - over 50 years ago.
Christine in playful mode on the balcony of Ward 2 ( 1956)
Beryl with Tosca, the pony belonging to Dr Williams' daughters that the teenage patients used to ride using their dressing-gown girdles as halters- strictly forbidden of course!
"The Children of Craig-y-nos" is available from Amazon.com
