As an NCH boy I was at a Home that took mainly young children up to the age of eight, if you were an older one, when an old unwanted pram became availabe, you were allowed to make a trolley out of it.
Slowly my name was at the top of the list to get the next unwanted pram.
The Senior Sister decided to have a good clear out of all the old prams, six were going to come free, enough for all those on the list.
Whilst we were at school, the Senior Sister had them all burnt, I hated her for evermore....
