Nurses at Grantham Hospital.

Marion is not pictured in the nurses photograph as she had just left the hospital to go into private nursing but she remembers quite a number of those pictured.

The WI photograph was taken on a trip to the Potteries. Most of those pictured were living in Oasby, like Marion, or Welby at the time.
