Dulwich Hospital by colleenwilson (Member 10141485) on 22-Jan-2011
I trained as a nurse at Dulwich Hospital in the 50,s,and mourn the passing of the old style hospitals with the Nightingale wards. We were a real community in those days and most of the nurses lived in the nurses homes. I havn't walked those corridors for about fifty years and wonder if I made the trip would I get past the gate.Anybody out there who can tell me.

    Hi there. My father lives <1 mile away and we both remember the hospital very well. I will be visiting him over the coming 10days, so I will try to ask the hospital when passing & let you know. Take care, Len (Brown)

  • Re: Dulwich Hospital by Peter Essex (Member 10259958) on 3-Apr-2011
    The nursing recollection is a blast from the past, as my grandfather, Edwin Ansley Catchpole, died at Dulwich Hospital in September 1953. He was the caretaker of the school in Grove Vale around World War 2 and just after, then retired to live in Oakhurst Grove.

  • Re: Dulwich Hospital by colleenwilson (Member 10141485) on 15-Dec-2013
    Hi Peter.I started my training at Dulwich March 1954. I also went to Grove Vale School immediately after the war ended so who knows your grandad and I could have had a passing aquaintance

    The school is still there and seems to be functioning - although I never seem to get to pass by during school hours and now live far away. The cinema nearby has closed, though (it was where my sister and I used to go for the Saturday am shows). My sister and I went to GV just a few years before: my time there ended in 1962 and hers, I believe, in 1964. We've both tried to 'find' Ruby Wills on the ... more >>

    There's a blast from the past! My grandfather, Edwin Ansley Catchpole, was the caretaker of this school during World War 2 and just after, before retiring to live nearby in Oakhurst Grove. The mention of a Miss Wilkie has triggered a very vague and distant recollection of the name. Maybe the caretaker was terrified of her too :-). I was born nearby in February 1944. My mother told two stori... more >>
