London Hospital Medical College Class of 1963

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:18 pm by Aleksan

50 years ago on Ocober 3rd 1963 I began my studies to become a medical doctor at the London Hospital Medical College, University of London. I met Penny a year later when she became a student there. We attended the 50 year reunion today – a sadly poignant experience but also a happy one. Young lads and lasses now older but unbowed despite success, failure and illness. Many now doing very different and exciting things in their post-retirement lives, but a few of us already dead Not an ending but a transition. We are the same people we always were, hopefully a little wiser and understanding. I thank you and salute you my past and present friends and colleagues, and wish you well!
