As a member of the Women’s Royal Army Corps, June Lowe was attached to the Royal engineers working in the postal and courier services. She served in Hong Kong.
“I came to the Royal Hospital in October, 2015. It is very hard to find the right words to describe what it means to me, other than ‘Wow!’ It is the whole package and I love everything about it, the building and so on, but mostly the people here. It is such a privilege to be here and to wear this scarlet uniform”.
“During the flower show, it is really hectic. I went down to have a look round last year and in two and half hours I was stopped so many times by people asking to take photographs, I only saw one stall! Hopefully I’ll see a bit more of it this year”.
“My favourite flowers are wild carnations. I love to buy them in bud and then watch them come out, as I have done since I was little. I had an uncle who grew wild carnations and I thought it was magnificent to watch them blossom”.
“I have a mixed bunch at the moment and there are all colours; yellow, purple and magenta. Gorgeous! I also love to watch gladioli opening up, from the bottom to the top – to me that’s the beauty of nature, right there.”
