Sully- Dr Len West

I got a phone call today from Rosie West, daughter of New Zealand doctor Len West, who was at Sully from 1948 until his death in 1970 from lung cancer.
He was only 59 years of age.

Says Rosie:" Like so many doctors of that time he smoked."

She recalls going to Sully on Saturdays while her father attended to work. "I also remember attending some children's parties."

Rosie heard about my blog from her Australian cousins who are researching their family history and they stumbled across it.

Other doctors she recalls are Dr Foreman, the Australian medical superintendent and Dilwyn Thomas the surgeon.

Rosie has some photos of her father's time at Sully and she is going to send them to me.
