Drunken nights of debauchery

"I lived in the lodge for over 10 years, did my nurse training there during the seventies.The head tutor then was Ron Lucas, he was replaced by a miserable old fart by the name of Jock Faulds. I also learnt to drive in the grounds, my father was the district ground supervisor (ivor luscombe)
I often think of my days in Hellingly. I remember the drunken nights of debauchery in the nurse home where i lived (Bowe hill).
It really was a blast from the past seeing your web site. Thanks!"
