I have put several posts on the FB group promoting this site & will continue to do so. It's a fantastic resource & as you know I keep uploading my badges and this site makes it easier for me to view my badges as they get stored on re photographed. Please keep up the great work.

I have been tremendously lucky in the number and variety of badges that have passed through my collection,but as ever there are a few that have eluded me. Although all of my collecting is now transient I still like to handle and photograph the more interesting items still out there before I move them on. Like many of us I still have a number of badges on my most wanted list.some I don't even have pictures of but know of their existence.these include the Asylum Workers Association,AWA a star badge with the letters to the centre. st Katherine's nurses,an early nursing group,(there is one in the royal collection).The Matrons Council,medal with MC to the centre.Queen Alexandra's Nurses badge 1899- 1901, awarded to nurses from the boer war( always V.expensive) Glasgow gold typhoid medal . You never know I might be lucky one day.

hi wilf I still love this site not as active as i should be but hubby's illness as impacted on my free time plus the fact I am now having to get used to windows 11 ( my last computer died!) Am still in the process of transfering my photos from my external hard drive to my new machine. I still recommend this site to people who are interested in keeping our history alive I have just recommended it to a buyer on ebay Once I've cracked this machine I'll get posting again please don't close it as i really love this site x

Thank you so much peter, much appreciated, by myself at least.
You will have noticed, I know our recent holiday, and of course missing presence!
I am uncertain as to the future of the site, but can assure you that I will not take it down as long as people visit, and of course I keep track of the numbers, which are still OK. We still need contributions of course, and I have one in prep. Nurse Histories are on hold right now. Hopefully that will change shortly - an illness in the family has precluded until recently. Out Tech support is always there, as is our ISP so there will be no dramatic crash, but yes, contributions are currently lacking. Maybe that will change....
And yes, there has been a terrific amount of work involved by many people. Somehow we have always made it through to the other side. I will say that your own support is paramount, please don't stop!
I have placed this response in the public domain in the hope that it will stimulate some debate at least. Lets see what transpires.
