Shirley Cox from Wiltshire

Shirley Cox, 1960sSouth West

‘St John Ambulance is a wonderful organisation and I am proud and honoured to be part of it. I Joined St John Ambulance in Wiltshire as a Cadet in 1954.

During the 1960s, I was part of the National Hospital Service Reserve which meant that I would report to Stratton St Margaret Hospital in the morning and would help the nurses with duties such as washing patients, making up beds, cleaning equipment and talking to patients.

I have attended the London marathon as a first aider on several occasions. One runner sent a letter which read, “from 30,000 marathon runners and me, thank you.”’
