  • I have such happy memories of being a student nurse at HWOH from 1973 – 75 and returning as a Staff Nurse in 1978. It truly was a special place with many wonderful characters.

  • The picture no. 2 is early sixties. Margaret Shooter is on far right and the sister is Sister Coupe later known as Sister Bolton.
