Seems I'm a couple of years older - I am on the far left, second row back in this 1959 photo (Philip Robinson).

Ashley Davis is directly behind Moira - I am between Ashley and Frank Courage. Ashley lived at the top of Wood Road (still does I think). Very sorry to hear that Moira has died - five of us classmates got together for the school's centenary in 2005. Somewhere I have a Word file with a list of names - I'll PM it to you when I find it. Happy New Year!

Suzy Q,

You intrigue me on the name of Nurse Marshman, and wonder where she originated.

I also remember King Edwards V11 hospital , visiting there a few times in the 1950's , with June Wood and her School of Dance group putting on shows for entertainment,with my late mother Peggy Marshman , who provided the piano accompanmient. This was a special place , and remember well a lot of the patients being entertained.
Without a car,I remember we needed to use the No.2 circular bus.

Re: King Edward VII Hospital on Rivelin Valley

When I was little my father used to sing a song to me from his time in Rivelin. I don't know if I remember all the words.

"Mother, mother fetch me home
From this convalescence home
I've been here a year or two
Now I want to come to you
Here comes a nurse with a red hot poltice
Slaps it on and takes no notice
Ahhh says the patient that's too hot
Ah says the nurse I'm sure it's not
Goodbye to Dr Patterson
and all the patients to
?(Goodbye to Rivelin too and
Jolly old Matron too)

I am trying to understand more about my father's experiences in and out of this hospital for nine years between the years 1936 (aged 2) and 1955. He was being treated for TB. I am researching so that I can write a family book.

(There was a happy ending as my father met my mother who was nursing here and they had a happy life together.)

Please do any of you know of any written accounts about the treatment of TB, personal accounts or photographs? It feels as if little is known about this time and place. I strongly believe this experience for so many children needs to be remembered and recorded.

Anything you feel able to share would be very much appreciated.

I thought that only me remembered that song, I was taught it in Rivelin, about 1950, I still sing it to my grand daughter, but with the words slightly altered to suit the school she goes to.

When I told my wife that the words to that song was on the forum, she started singing it straight away. She was in Rivelin in the 1950s also.

My mum was a nurse at the hospital around 1953. Her name was Jean Rider and she was at one time a ward sister. She was part of the Christmas pantos they used to have - the photo I had looks a bit like Robin Hood. She was alao there when Billy Smart's Circus paid a visit and when Wilfred Pickles came one Christmas. I'm pretty sure she would have left by 1957 as that was after she got married, and the year her first child was born. She married John Philip Abrahams, who was a school teacher.
I'm making a memory book for her as she sadly now has Alzheimers, but I would be thrilled if anyone has any memories of her I can put in the book

Thanks

Lesley (middle daughter)

I was interviewed on the Wilfred Pickles show when they broadcast from Rivelin, I believe Violet Carson ( Ena Sharples played the piano.
Some of the stars who played at the Empire theatre used to put a show on at the hospital. remember Tesse O'Shea, who played the banjo, Winifred Attwell,(Piano), and of course there was also the circus.
