Royal College of Nursing Digital Archive.

It is some time since I last explored this, finding it rather clunky and difficult to navigate.It could still be a lot easier to use but some recent additions are well worth an examination, including this ; https://rcn.access.preservica.com/uncategorized/SO_3295976f-d5c0-4170-b5be-bb6416f2eda8/?fbclid=IwAR3f60jIeZzoAOZa2BsrRrc_jzu_roXlX779ssF-ag75uRGqLRrrCSLinkY

I have found many examples of badges I have not seen previously and some spectacular prize items.

My jewel of a find however is a picture of the badge from the Matrons Council which I have only seen illustrations of(although they do not know what is );  https://rcn.access.preservica.com/uncategorized/IO_5d1bb6ce-de10-4bc7-bf68-7e6e4b281c65/?fbclid=IwAR2yQid121frk-53FhfAouJ0IfzhNWPr51ZdtbuRnXneEydMXWRi7kqEx5w

Thank you Peter for this link. Great digital collection although I noticed of all the badges/medals in this collection only one is Irish (Rotunda in Dublin).

Someone should point the RCN to the search facility on here to identify some of their unidentified badges!

Hi Myk.

Quite correct!  Perhaps Peter is the man for the job?.....
