Topic: Baby Stories - Linda Moltzen (nee Troop)

Topic type:

Linda Moltzen was the daughter of David & Lilian Troop and she remembers...

In 1957, when I was nine years old, my mother gave birth to my sister, Averil at the Kawerau Maternity Hospital beside the river. My Dad was given lots of instructions on how to care for me and the house when my mother went into labour. He promised to take good care of me. However he got into a great deal of trouble when my mother, who was recovering from childbirth, spied me and a friend heading across to the town rubbish dump to forage for comics we had been told were dumped there by the local shop if unsold. My mother was not impressed with Dad’s care!!!
