... air! Sore, with wounded pride, but otherwise fine. The very few wet and dreary days. The forest fires in the mountains during late July and August. And the battle to keep Millie well and happy.

The hospital was dug/built in 1941-42 and only decommissioned in the 70's. The tunnels are wide but only dimly lit and the lighting was, in wartime, very dodgy. Imagine trying to perform surgery with only one tiny globe swinging above and bombs hitting the ground above, making the light cut all together! The simulation program also played bomb noises and the walls rattled ...
