  1. This took me back to my days in and around St Mary’s Hospital. Fleming and Almoth-Wright have wards named after them still. I wonder how many of the patients on those wards know of the importance of the background to those names?
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • I bet they don’t. There was a ward at the old Westminster Hospital that was named after my great-grandfather though his background is only important to me (I’m not sure others in the family even know, let alone are interested). It was only named thus because he made a large donation. Actually, I must write about him because he was a ship company owner in Liverpool and became an MP and had dealings with Churchill. I need to do some more research!
