I was impressed with the group including ARRC and large size LH Badge to the Matron and thought it was a fair price. I didn't bid but admit I did have to sit on my hands in the final seconds! I hope it finds it's way back to the London or at least someone who appreciates it's history.

I hope this will be or at least one day be on display in The Royal Hospital Museum. This collection is so important to the history of nursing at the hospital. I note Miss Littleboy was awarded the larger size badge. As the President of Nurses League 1934 to 1935 she was responsible for introducing the smaller size badge.  I wonder if she also had a smaller version.

I'd say a much rarer item and good value.If anything I'd say that Nightingales are still overpriced for the number of them in circulation.That being said there is a rather nice WW2 group in the next Dix, Noonan and Webb auction which includes an MBE,RRC  service medals and cased Nightingale; https://www.dnw.co.uk/auctions/catalogue/lot.php?auction_id=494&lot_id=57503&search=1

If only my lottery numbers would come up!

Hi..

Just back from holiday.   Does anyone know what happened to the Lot?  It must surely have gone for more than the estimates?

Will.
