Glynn Reeve from Wiltshire

Glynn Reeve, 1960sSouth West

‘I joined St John Ambulance when I was eight years old. At that time training consisted of first aid and nursing. We used to meet in a local hall and regularly took part in county and regional competitions.

My most memorable first aid incident happened when I was about 18 years old and dealt with a fatality at Salisbury fair.

A girl had stood up on a waltzer fairground ride and hit her head on an upright beam. I was first on the scene and had to deal with both the fatality and her friends until further help arrived. Being able to assist others and be of use to my community has driven me on.’
