Hi Barry.

Yes please - anything you have.  As you know all is valued and will hopefully be used constructively. When I started the article I had no idea we would find so many. Perhaps a part 2 is needed - or an extension of the original?

Your original help Is much appreciated.

Very Best,
Will

I have found another SoN issued buckle which I had heard of but never seen.Only a picture I'm afraid as the owner, quite rightly intends to hang on to it! It dates form the amalgamation of the the University College Hospital and the Middlesex Hospital schools of Nursing into the Bloomsbury College of Nurse Education in the late 1980s and combines the emblems from the two separate buckles.

Can I just say what a brilliant job re my gallery, Iím suitably impressed.  Can I ask do you adjust the light as I know the depth of the blue felt varies according to the light in my house when I take the photos?
Again a job well done.
Thanks
Mike.

HI Mike.

Many thanks for that, sincerely.

But - would if I could but I can't!!  I would need a real sample of the background before I could get that right... And then, the light in my house would vary... I can say that there is much more that could be done with the badge photographs all round, but unfortunately I just don't have the time right now.

Maybe when we reach the 'Book' stage...

Thanks again for your observation.

Will.
