Storyline

Given district nursing duties Jenny meets and befriends old soldier Joe Collett,whose ulcerated legs make him a prisoner in his squalid tenement flat. Having allowed homeless old flame Jimmy to sleep in the convent boiler room Jenny gets him to help her take Joe to an army reunion but the flats are shortly demolished as uninhabitable and Joe ends up in an inefficient care home where he dies,leaving Jenny his few belongings. Her colleagues Trixie and Cynthia attend to middle-aged Winnie and Ted,both on their second marriage but,unlike the childless Ted, Winnie,who has three children of her own,is not looking forward to the baby's birth. After delivering the child the nurses see why but Ted is so elated that he is forgiving. Chummy meanwhile goes on a date with local policeman Peter Noakes. Written by don @ minifie-1
