....I can never remember food as bad as described by Mr Northwood. I must confess however, I was not a brussel sprouts fan especially when "Matron Flatfoot" (predessror of Miss Sully) would keep you at the table until the last one had gone! (I seem to remember it kept re-appearing in my mouth everytime I swallowed!)

My favourite was a doorstep of white bread that had been soaked in marmite and deep fried in lard for breakfast. Less imaginative was the rice left over from curry, re-heated and 'drizzeled' with warm, watery Golden Syrup but nevertheless it was very palatable.

P.S. What was a menu? When I was there you just ate what you were given and were pleased to have it. "Oh Lord thank you for what we have received" - Ahmen circa 1956 S.Biggs
