Staff nurse 1960. When nurses looked like nurses. Had a spell in isolation hospital when I was 7. Never saw any family for well over a week. Traumatic for a child. Can remember Night Sister telling me off for crying for my Mum. I chose this pin because the nurse looks similar to the young girl who looked after me during the day and was so kind.
