I don't know whether your aware but the Ulster Museum in Belfast have most of the Northern Irish badges and the Ulster Volunteer insignia including the medical insignia.

Thanks Barry. I was not aware of the Ulster Museum had nursing badges on display. The next time I am in N.I. I will pay a visit. I still hope that a National Museum will allot a gallery dedicated to the History of Nursing and the Contribution of Nursing to society. Maybe one day the membership will be to donate their collection of badges and these will be displayed for all to see!

I can't guarantee that they have them on display now but they do have them and they have displayed them in the past, I live there from Aug/82 until Aug/85.

Also got my eye on the Burnley set as it has the  badge with the Garter which I haven't got, however I do have the others so if anyone want the others I'm sure I have them for swap/sale.

Sorry to hear you didn't get the Kidderminster Sue, I got the Crumpsall badge, quite pleased.
