  • I was a student in 1974, Alvera Remfrey, and have fond memories of Harlow Wood. Does anyone else remember the walk in patient showers trying to keep the elaborate headdress dry? Part of the initial training involved making the hat out of a huge starched piece of cotton cloth.
    My fiance and I had a Mk1 Cortina and the battery kept going flat. The Porters would push start the car on the cold mornings and nights. I would love to hear from anyone else who was there.

  • I have just found my presentation photo from 1969, I am the one at the front right, then known as Giuseppina [Tuoni ] Iannantuoni. I would love to make contact with any of the group that were my friends. They all came to my wedding and then we all moved on and lost touch.

  • I am searching for a long lost friend I have just found a photograph of her it is the very first photo and she is sitting down the second from the left. She is also picture being given her certificate by a man with a funny hat and gown on. Her name then was Margaret Arundale and she lived in West Hartlepool – she went on to finish her state registration at the Leicester Royal Infirmary which is where I met her. I would dearly love to know her whereabouts, I know she did get married but have forgotten her married name. Margaret Hatcher
