You didn't say you wanted Birkenhead & Wirral badges, however I have most of them and a couple of 1 off items.
Iím happy to loan any of mine which may be of use.
Thanks Both,
I reckon that there are probably over 40 different Liverpool badges plus Bootle,Birkenhead and the Wirral so it would be nice to see how many of those I can locate from various sources?
I am away for a few days but will start to list those I can identify on my return.
I've got a few which your most welcome to use, I have my mothers Registered Sick Nurses Association badge as Myrtle Street didn't then have a badge for The Royal Liverpool Children's Hospital.

Hi Peter,

Could be - the painting is a little coarser than what I believe is a camera portrait, but it is apossibility. And yo never know, someone may pop up with the answer.... Lets see what b others think.

That particular article by the way, has a way to go before completion - there is a lot of material/photographs to deal with but it should be done by the next news - couple of months away...

feel free to borrow whatever you need from me but I have very little Liverpool stuff

 Hi all,
I am in the very early discussion phase of trying to organise an event with Liverpool branch for next years RCN Congress.I would like to focus on the Nursing & midwifery badges of the region and whilst I did have quite a number ,most have now been parted with.I wonder about how members would feel about lending relevant items for a display that week as otherwise I will have to rely upon photographic images.I welcome comments.

Very enjoyable as always so congratulations to all contributors.I was particularly interested in the article by Sue Barker on Amy Anne Braddick and the image of her in uniform whites in 1942. It bears a very close resemblance to a painting I have in my pending pile(In need of restoration and research).Simply titled Matron it shows a QAIMNS Reserve nurse in tropical uniform.
What do people think,Could it be the same person?

It's a shame that they only want to meet with a university in London. I am 69 and still working as the clinical education lead at the Queen Victoria Hospital at East Grindstead. Because of our wartime history with McIndoe and burns treatment the Americans funded the American theatre in use until 2 years ago and the Canadians funded a ward area still called Canadian wing. Lots WW2 history here.

Hi Dave,
I work in Clatterbridge and trained at St Catherines/ B'Head General in 1976.
It may be worth putting something on the notice board in the Dining Room to see if anyone knows a contact perhaps.
Good luck
