London Hospital Badge
« on: August 17, 2013, 11:23:13 PM »
Having obtained a spare London Hospital badge is there anyone interested in doing a swap for some hospital/nursing badges?  Serious offers only, not after cash.  It's the one on the left of the photo.
Mike

Hi Mike, how did you find those?, I have never heard of unissued ones like that from the London being sold off before-they are always named!-does your seller have more?

Hi Lizzie
Seller has no more, not asked her where she got them from?
You interested in swaps?
Mike

Lol, ok, if you have the Nightingale SEN I'd swap but I live in hope too.  Do you know how long the LH SEN were issued for & from what date?
Cheers

HI Mike, I do have a Nightingale SEn, but its not for swaps! Regards the other info, it is being loaded by Will in an article i have written about the LH badge and how it evolves... i think that your questions will be answered in there! (not neccessarily for set numbers, and Peggy is sadly  now dead who ran the course for many years.

Ok, that's fine but if you do know anyone willing to swap a Nightingale SEN for a London SEN let me know.  I look forward to your article, you could always PM me with the answer, discretion assured lol.
Thanks
Mike

I'd prefer to do this face to face if possible as I know you don't live far away from me and I'd be quite willing to travel.

Hi Lizzie
The HM on the EN badge is as follows
JRG, Anchor, Lion and what appears to be a letter L, do you know what year this is then?

do you know I think I prefer the EN version. Any chance of a photo of the hallmarks especially the date letter? To work out the date as it depends on the font and the "shield" in which the letter is sitting. The rest is easy Anchor = Birmingham assay office and the lion is silver As for JRG that cold be John Gaunt but the London Hospital set is wonderful
