Confined to a wheelchair
after the many
on his wounded leg.

There was always a 'mate'
to help out, even when he
had difficulties himself.

Visitor's Day was always a big event. The families would travel
miles to visit their loved ones.

Many wounded soldiers fell in love with the wonderful nurses.
This is where Ivor
met his future wife's sister
(This is not her, look at Lenny)
