These nurses started their training at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary 30 years ago.
Now they are staging a reunion and are anxious to trace as many as possible – if not all from their 25-strong group.
One of them Sue Taylor (nee Jones) now lives in Perth, Australia, and is considering flying back to the UK for the reunion.
Co-organiser Diane Appleyard said: “If she does it will certainly be an expensive night out. When we were training we used to go out to Johnnys nightclub in Huddersfield at the 999 nights they held on Mondays and got in free.”
Diane and co-organiser Gaynor Charlesworth have tracked down around two-thirds of their set but are anxious to find them all. They will now be aged 47 or 48.
Both still work at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Diane is a research nurse doing a study into reducing heart attacks and strokes. It involves 160 patients here but is part of a worldwide study lasting around five years involving 30,000 patients nationwide. A new drug is being trialled to try to cut heart attacks in the future.
Gaynor is a specialist diabetic nurse.
Diane said: “We all started training in September 30 years ago which involved studying at the school of nursing at the infirmary and working on the wards.
“I have managed to contact most of the group but am struggling to find a few girls who I know used to live in the Huddersfield area.
“Maybe their parents or siblings might recognise them and get in touch.
“We are also hoping that our tutor, Christine Crabtree, will be able to attend.”
The reunion is planned for October 12 at the Nags Head pub, Ainley Top.
