CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: At the time of the Aberfan disaster, during October 1966, Irene Lewis was working as a Sister Tutor at the School of Nursing, Llandough Hospital. When news of the disaster reached the school, six of the student nurses immediately wished to offer their services in assisting with the rescue operation. The six came from the Merthyr area. Irene Lewis accompanied them to Aberfan. Miss Lewis��TM experience at the disaster had a great affect upon her, leading her to re-think her career and change the direction of her life. Miss Lewis, now Mrs Herry, later emigrated to Australia, and has lost touch with the student nurses with whom she went to Aberfan.
