Fond memories of Louth hospital

EDITOR – Ref your lovely article in the Leader (February 9) on the old hospital in Louth.

In 1946 for some reason or another my doctor decided I should go into hospital in ‘good time’ for my baby to be born.

The hospital was Crowtree Lane.

As it turned out I was there for three weeks instead of the usual two weeks.

The Matron – bless her – only charged me for two weeks, which was £10.

My other memory is of a tall, vigorous nurse who was a member of the Salvation Army and she went around the ward singing hymns while doing her rounds.

She was a wonderful nurse as well as good at hymn singing!

Could this happen today on the wards!!!

Your pictures are lovely.
