Piers Lawford

My brother Piers was born on 9th May 1947 at a nursing home in Sevenoaks. He lived with the family at Danegate until 1950 when we moved to Stocks Farm. Thereafter we grew up together on the farm, playing together and 'ragging' constantly. Piers followed Fuff and I to St Ronan's in 1955 and then in 1960 went on to Stowe where he excelled at cricket and long distance running, and became a good musician and singer, playing the organ as well as the piano.

Leaving Stowe he studied at the London Hospital for his medical exams, living with me at 10 Shouldham St, where he managed to install a piano in the back bedroom.

On qualifying, he worked at Northwood and Poole Hospital before going up to spend five years at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. In 1976 he married Margaret Lammond, a nursing sister at the hospital and shortly afterwards took a jobat the Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital, and moving to Coventry. In 1982 Mhairi was born.
