1947 -1951 I was at Harpenden from May47.
I was a little worried walking down Ambrose Lane, but I was made welcome in the admin block, then over to Botley. That’s where I was greeted by Sister P Holloway, strict but fair. Who remembers the golden shred at the breakfast table?
A couple of transfers to other houses where we were looked after by Sister Joan Vivash, ending up in Mrs Ferens.
My time at the NCH was the best time of my life.
