Let out from Hospital

On VE day I was in Tolworth hospital with suspected scarlet fever for about 3 weeks.
I was wheeled out onto the hospital veranda where the nurses tied balloons to the end of my bed so I could hear all the church bells ringing and the cheering.
I was to be five in three weeks time! Funny how you remember certain things in your life.
