 Sorry but I thought I had an image of one in the RCN display case but can't locate it.It really is a rarity and I only know of Edelweiss's and the RCN one.

Another request if anyone has a spare Great Ormond Street SRN,either the version with Hospitals or Hospital ,thanks

That is rather distressing,possibly mis-filed? All I can say is that they definitely had one in the Meglaughlin collection.It is illustrated on page 34 of the Meglaughlin catalogue being badge number 648 with the reverse on page 46.

Hi Peter,

No help I'm afraid - I thought that I might have one but unfortunately was wrong!

Will.

I agree Sue,the Typhoid is nice but I have my eyes on another one from my wish list.Fingers crossed.Good luck to anyone going for the Maidstone though.
