    Me again, I was wrong, it is the National Hospital Service Reserve and here's an armband to prove it! Leon.

    Hi James,

    Here a few photos of two of my national hospital service reserve items. We have a MK2 NHSR helmet which is quite interesting. I believe that the national hospital service reserve was in operation from 1946 - 1968.

    Cheers

    Looks amazing with the others James. I also like how you have displayed the beret. I would have kept it myself but i already have a MK2 NHSR, so you know, space and all that

    Here are a couple of pics of my MK2 NHSR. Shell is BMB 1940 and liner is 50s dated. Personally I have only seen two of these, both of which I purchased, although I sold the other and now regret it a bit. But i'm sure they are around. Its marked NHSR on the back and the front.
