In short, everyone who has agreed to our publishing a public gallery will have one - using their own photographs wherever possible. We must surely have a copy of almost every UK nursing/hospital badge ever produced.
Click a badge photograph to see the single page! The links can take you back and forward - a page at a time (24 badges per page) - for all 1310 pages if you like. Or go to the 'Gallery Start" page at the bottom of any individual badge to get back to the numbered 24 badge page. Sound complicated but you will quickly get the hang of it - promise!

Still accumulating, albeit very more slowly. The 'National' galleries now contain 6832,000 nursing/hospital badge photographs encompassing all areas of the UK; 594 photographs (buildings/people/ephemera); and 195 photographs (nurse uniforms), both civilian and military. We have achieved 6832,788 already! By the end of 2022? 7000 is a target. It is possible. We continue to make solid progress and will perhaps achieve the largest collection in the UK, if we are not already there. New additions continue and visitors have increased markedly...
But the photographs are not our be
all/end all. Our online articles (42) are gaining too, to say nothing of our
nursing histories and news pages. There is a great deal of research
involved. Someone's time. Someone's money. All given selflessly without
thought of gain. What we have here are the seeds of success.
Collecting... New, absolutely not! BUT NICE...
So, where do we
go form here? The local antique shop? No. I have already mentioned a
new article above - Fixings & Fastenings - NEW - part one is online
Link Part two will
follow in the New Year.
themselves were made in a variety of shapes, sizes and metals, from
base metal, to silver, to gold. Miniatures were intended for wear to
show support for serving members, rather as does the Royal Red Cross
poppy we see ever year at the cenotaph.
just what is her badge?
Well, that is yet another very pleasant note upon which to end the 61st Schools of Nursing Site News.....Next update February 2023.

used to produce the News Pages.
