Sick Prade

Berni McGee

I have made a routine telephone calls this month to the Nursing Home that is looking after Berni McGee and spoke to the staff nurse on Berni's ward. 

She reported that Berni was as well as could be expected considering that he is now immobile and requires a hoist to move him around.   

The Nursing home can be contacted on 01756 752200 if any old comrade would like to speak to them direct.

 I have not been made aware of any other old comrade who is not well.

John Hewitson

It gives me much pleasure to report that Spec Savers and the like have just lost a customer. Suffering with bad eyesight over the past two years and being diagnosed with cataract's in both eyes, I was referred to the hospital for treatment. Whilst waiting for an appointment to see a consultant I lost 90% of the sight in my right eye. In despair, and still waiting for an appointment under the NHS I decided to  seek private treatment and arranged to have cataract surgery on my right eye at Southampton Eye Hospital in October. So pleased with the result of the surgery and still no NHS appointment I made a follow-up appointment to have the same surgery on my left eye. The surgery took place on the 3rd December and I can report that all went well and for the first time in 45 years I only need to wear spectacles for reading. A great result for me but the Bank Manager had a heart attack. If anyone finds themselves in the same position as me and live within travelling distance of Southampton, its the way to go.

 Cheapest by far for a 10th Hussar.
