Caroline Boyce- Oldie magazine
(From left to right) Mary , Ann ( in bed) and Caroline on the balcony of Craig-y-nos Castle.
Caroline Boyce ( nee Havard) has her story in this month's
"Oldie" magazine" (Go to the link in the side panel on "Whats in.." the magazine this month.)
She tells me it gave her quite a turn when she picked up the magazine and read it in print.
Well it came as something of a shock to me too when I bought a copy today from WH Smith and opened it to find a photo of Mary, Caroline and myself in Craig-y-nos.
It is as if our history has been finally validated now its out in the common domain.
Caroline has written an excellent account which I shall put up on the blog ( once I have figured out how to put it into the correct file format for the web)
"The Children of Craig-y-nos" by Ann Shaw and Carole Reeves ( price £9.99) published by The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, UCL.
