BMH Dhekelia, in 1972

Written by Susan Simmons nee Cummings

I was a young and may I say happy go lucky QA in 1972 and spent many a happy hour in "My Paradise" "Romanzo’s" and the discos in Larnaca. I happened to be working on the children’s ward at the time, let me tell you, it was not the place to work with a hang-over!!!! I found the linen cupboard was a haven of peace and quiet.
Does any one recall the places I mentioned? and also the great friends. Terry Hook, Marie Watson, Sue Taylor and Sheila Worthington?

1973 Cyprus......enjoying a great posting with my family, then the overthrow of Archbishop Makarios cause the conflict between Greeks and Turks. So sad the Island is still split. Use to stand on the roof of the BMH and watch the Turkish jets fly over and bomb Famagusta.
