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.
