There is a London Hospital Enrolled Nurse badge going for a tidy sum at the moment with 2 days to go.  I suspect it is one of the many that were sold a year or 2 ago.

.......Breaking News......Nursing badge sells for an amount of money..for details see all previous threads ad infinitum.

Now what was of interest was the superb Military Medal to a QAIMNS nurse E.James for bravery under fire during the First World War .Sold for a very reasonable £3,300 . Whilst I am sure that we will see a few LH badges in the coming years ,bravery awards to nurses are not common at all .How much would a nursing George medal be worth?

At a conservative estimate around the £20,000 mark.

Difficult to say it’s worth.  I hope it stayed in the UK & wouldn’t it have been great if the Army Medical Services Museum or the National Army Museum had been the successful winners.
