Sue and Elizabeth qualified as nurses at Paddington General Hospital on the same day fifty years ago.
Since then, the two have remained best friends, and will be celebrating their 71st birthday – they were born a day apart – soon.
Elizabeth, of Irish/Nigerian origin, shared “then and now” photos of themselves, writing:
