    I came across some pictures of Nurse Balloons .... and I wondered what they were and what was their purpose ?

    To the best of my knowledge, a 'nurse' balloon was an inflatable container for hydrogen storage. The gas was used to inflate the normal kite balloons that were used for artillery observation.
