  1. All opthalmic services were transferred to the QMC by around 1983. Kind regards, Tony
  2. Dr Alfred Minto was a consultant psychiatrist at Mapperley hospital. He used to be in charge of the Addiction Unit at Mapperley hospital. Quite a pleasant chap. Kind regards, Tony
  3. Thank you Jill, If you are interested have look at FB, Nottingham Nurses League and Nottingham Hospital's History also FB Hundreds of photographs, anecdotes etc Kind regards Tony PS one of our members who is 95 years old trained at NGH during WW2 and has given us a fascinating account of the Nottm blitz.
  4. Jill, Good research. You are quite correct. There was a ward named after Mr H at NGH. And what is nice to this day, two wards, Gervis Pearson and Hogarth have been relocated at the City Hospital so the memory lives on. I have hundreds of photographs of the former NGH ( I am the archivist to the Nottingham Nurses League) but have tried many many times to post photo's on here and despite very helpful comments from Mick T et al I still have no more idea that the man in the moon-too complicated. Out of interest the 'radium' that was used on patients used to be buried in the caves under the Gene
  5. Jill, Thank you for the clarification. Yes the former 48, The Rope Walk is still there, I use to cover there on Night duty in the early 70's. Kind regards, Tony
  6. Jill, Interesting comments you have made and quite an experience. I worked at Nottingham General Hospital for nearly three years and knew the consultants and senior nursing staff on Gervis Pearson ward ( Oncology )-which I think you are referring to. I even worked on the ward. I never ever saw any experimenting with cytotoxic drugs. The Oncology ward was first class. The former ward is still there but not sure where you get the term Cavendish House from. Kind regards, Tony
  7. When we moved up to Derbyshire many years ago and attended church we noticed that the hymn book was PC . Onward Christian Soldiers, Stand Up stand Up for Jesus not in, ( tune was in but the words changed ) also in many hymns gender changed to obliterate any reference to 'him'. I joined the Parochial Church Council and as Church warden changed the hymn books back to the more traditional ones. Of course the C/E has tinkered with the liturgy for many years and it puts many people off. Happy memories of St Faiths Church in the Meadows and morning worship at TB school. Kind regards, Tony
  8. Interesting photographs but some have been around before. Works all right for me. Kind regards, Tony
  9. Michael, Thanks for posting. I planned our village Remembrance in our church for today and the first reader read this lovely moving poem. I did a very traditional Royal British Legion service with all the old traditional hymns, for example 'Onward Christian Soldiers' which is considered by many clergy to be non PC. We had over 100 in the congregation which is very good for a very small village. As a child and teenager I always went to the service on the Victoria Embankment-happy memories. I do hope you are well and your wife is progressing. Kind regards Tony Anthony Paine
  10. Many years ago in Florida picking up a hire car the chap said to me I see you are from Wilford Nottingham.( In an American accent) We had a chat and it transpired that he was from WB and went to Roland Green School. I asked him why he had lost his Nottingham accent and he replied it was to fit in with the locals as they could not understand him when he first came 2 years before!! Kind regards Tony
  11. A friend of mine from TB school, Michael O'Rourke lived on Orange street. His family owned the corner shop. This was the 1960's. Happy memories! Kind regards Tony
  12. All the school have been demolished. Happy memories. Kind regards, Tony
  13. Bile beans, Veganin tabs ( analgesics) Gentian Violet for sore throats. Mist Kaolin et Morph. Kind regards, Tony
  14. Don, Joseph Kehoe had quite severe facial injuries after falling on a mountain slope when we were on school trip to Bellinzona, Switzerland in 1959. Very happy memories of TB school and the meadows. Kind regards, Tony
