"Down Your Way" 5. John Boulton
Three miles up the Guildford road, north of Midhurst to "the world-famous" King Edward VII Hospital, to talk to the secretary John Boulton for this fifth interview. Perhaps the most poignant so far as John outlines, with some pride, the hospital's past achievements and plans for the future. Of course at that time neither John nor anyone else would have had any suspicion that thirty years hence the hospital, founded in 1903, would be no more.
John's record choice was Imperial Echoes played by the Band of the Coldstream Guards.
