Not sure if we have ever  decided this question but I has recently been asked of me so I'll ask it again.What do we believe is the earliest Nursing badge issued in the Uk(other than religious Order/Pilgrim Token type  badges)? I know that the Nurses who served in the Crimea wore an embroidered sash but I am unaware of a badge as such. I think it will probably be a religious order such as the order of St John the Divine or St Katherines Nurses? I am fairly ignorant about the Guild of St Veronica and Guild of St Barnabus,but believe their badges to be fairly early? The Workhouse Infirmary nurses issued their badges in the 1880s but which were the earliest?

I know that I should know this but what is the difference between the standard silver/white metal Royal Infirmary Edinburgh pelican badge and the brass version? (please don't say one is silver and the other is brass) What I mean is why was the brass one issued,A Wartime economy thing?

Thanks

Presumably the R.C.N. or the Welcome Institute should know?

Does anyone know how many of the above there are presently in the UK or how I would find out?
