Description

There are three clips in this playlist, in the first Myra describes her schooling, wanting to be a nurse aged 9, the letters she had to provide to apply, the interview and her three month trial at Briarwood.

In the second she talks about training at Briarwood, no boyfriends were allowed, returning to training after a weekend at home, cleaning their rooms, the practical room at Briarwood, the grilling given to Myra when taken home by her brother and the home sister checking on student nurses.

In the third she notes the camaraderie among the nurses, the expenses they had to pay, nights out learning to smoke at the coffee bar and the Matron's Ball in Fallowfield with the police.
