From my Slide Collection, 1970

This was the year when our elder daughter, Mary, was born. My father was delighted with his first grandchild to whom we gave my mother's name. Mary was the only one of his grandchildren whom he lived to see.
In this year too I undertook my first "house jobs" as a newly qualified doctor, and we attended my graduation ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall in the presence of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
