We spent the day showing Helen and Brian some of the sights of London. I took Beat¹ to the Imperial War Museum which was excellent, especially when I wrangled us in for £1-50 each with my YHA “student” card and into a mockup of the Blitz for 50p each!

After lunch at the Red Lion we met Linda and Helen at St. Paul’s. In the evening we had drinks at the pub then we went and spent the night in Alex, Lucy and Sue’s² flat in the St. Thomas’ Nurse’s Hostel.

¹Brian’s nickname was, and still is, Beat.

²We had made friends with these three girls while we were working at the Red Lion. Thirty years later, we still keep in touch with them!

L-R: Linda, Lucy, Alex, Ferg, Sue.
