From Sully to Australia

Just received an email from Alan Workman, aged  80, living in  Australia who found this blog on the internet.

He spent some time in Sully and recalls how in the 1950s the heart and TB patients used to communicate though it was strictly forbidden ( for fear of infection) for  them to mix.

"We used to communicate with them by holding an orange in our  hand and  writing in the air in big letters , i had part of my lung removed, a major op in those days, but am now eighty and still going strong."

Great to hear from you Alan and to know you are fit and healthy.
