Very Nice ,another to add to the list.Interestingly it appears to have pomegranate seeds in the design relating to Midwifery ?
I did also see a Hammersmith Hospital buckle which I unfortunately took my eye off and missed!

Hi.

Not me Peter - sadly - just had to buy a new large-format printer... It did look absolutely superb.  Someone got very, very lucky..

I know that Barry is getting a nice collection of different ones together but I'm sure there are still several to be found.

Hi.

I hope Barry posts them all - perhaps we might need a new section - nursing belt buckles?

Hi.

Very nice Peter.  Barry has now sent a batch of nuclear photos - with more to come!  We should get an excellent article out of this, though there is a little photo-editing first. Plus I am away for anther 3/52 but I think it will be worth the wait....
