In June 1947 Marge began work at the Alice Spring Hospital, combining nursing and wardsmaid duties.  The Delany brothers brought a baby eagle to her to attend to.  He was called Buster and “had the run of the hospital during the day.  He would make regular visits to various departments and spend some time with the staff.”
