Hello carolsv,

I don't know anyone from your school, but if you can provide a photograph I can perhaps attach it here - or the next News Page.  I hope that you find some of your school set, and you never know... Fingers crossed...

Will.

Kent and Canterbury Hospital's Nurses League annual reunion is this Saturday - do you have/want contact details for them? I do a history display each year, including this year my new banner of East Kent Nursing Badges, as well as lots of photos from the hospital over the last 100 years. Happy to pass on contact details or let you have the League's contact details if interested. They are always looking for new members... and one or two always bnring in photos, badges or other memorabilia for me too.

And an embarrassingly leisurely 8 months later, here are the few pictures from our Nurses' League reunion last May. More pix of the display than of the appreciative former nurses, but there are usually around 40-50 attendees, and they do enjoy the history display - it's just that when the room is busier, I'm chatting too much to take photos... that's my excuse.

Thanks Mark, A nice looking display which looks to have been well appreciated.This is just the sort of thing that encourages people to dig out and record their artefacts and memories.I wish all hospitals recognised the value of our History but sadly not the case.
