Dear Mrs…. Things Are Very Busy Here

“After this things got busy in our hospital, and every day fresh cases arrived until we were full up. As we were understaffed, it meant that the non-administrative officers, like myself, got a great deal of extra work to do. For instance, at one time, another officer and myself, had to look after all the patients in hospital between ourselves. There were over 400 patients in the hospital at the time. The registrar sat in his office writing letters to his wife, no matter whether we had 400 or 4 patients to attend to.”
