About this work
"The purpose of the N.H.S.R. [National Hospital Service Reserve] is to recruit, train and organise in peacetime a Reserve of men and women qualified in first aid and home nursing, who would in time of war not only provide the additional staff required for the greatly expanded hospital service, but would also man some 2,000 Mobile First Aid Units and some 800 static first-aid posts at hospitals. Its peacetime target is 100,000 and by the end of last year nearly 35,000 members had been recruited."--British journal of nursing, March 1954, p. 30
