wonderful as always and yes we all have those must haves - at least your article shed light light on the Fife badge ( that I had a bid on) that was deleted from ebay without explanation I am glad it went to a fellow collector and now begins my hunt to find another one So many wanted badges and so little pennies.....

And I wanted the B/ham and Midland eye infirmary. Hee hee. I thought the article was marvellous, really interesting. Should I post my badges even tho everyone else seems to have posted them already? Is it useful to have duplicates? ???

Hi. Greetings.

Please note that the June 2015 News Page went on-line a couple of hours ago:-

http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Newspages/SiteNews.htm

Once more there is a lot in here - including another 2 new articles by Sarah Rogers:-

http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Collections1/Collections51.htm

http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Collections1/Collections52.htm

News of progress (a lot) re:our badge catalogue. This latter is the precursor to our open-access galleries and our finding book... More photographs from the past; and a bumper 'collectors corner' on new acquisitions - each, hopefully a little more collected nursing history. Plus serious thanks to everyone who has contributed in any way to the page - especially for the moral support which is so important. Many thanks.

It's all in there (plus more!) and I hope that it will all meet with your approval and glowing accolades!!

Will.

The Tredegar House photo is  I think the London Hospital nurse training school PTS in the Bow Rd; the uniform was changed in the 1950's after Norman Hartnell redesigned it. It is hard to tell how long their skirts are, I have seen photos of nurses in it from the 1930;s to 1940's. I doubt this one was in the war years as the LH PTS was sent out to ? Trueloves in Essex for the duration of the war. The size of the puffs give the LH dress away; post about 1954 they were made smaller, and wore brown shoes and creamish tights... not black. I do not know when students stopped wearing white sleeves on their fore arms.... Sisters still wore them in my day! (1980's) So to answer the question that badge I do not think is related to those nurses if they are LH nurses....is a Welsh badge? Sarah

Hello to all,

And Sincere apologies.  The SoN News was due today. I regret that life has conspired against my efforts on this occasion...

The News will now be published not later than 72hours from today - Saturday October 3rd.  It is almost complete but I don't want to put a half-cooked edition on-line.

Apologies.
Will.

Hi. Greetings.

Please note that the September 2015 News Page went on-line a short time ago:-

Once more there is a lot in here - plus a total of 51 Articles although no new additions this time.

http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Collections1/Collections001.htm

News of progress (a lot) re:our badge catalogue. This latter is the precursor to our open-access galleries and our finding book... More photographs from the past; and a bumper 'collectors corner' on new acquisitions - the latest, Sister (later Matron) Sarah Alice Claridge (Boer War and WWI) plus some finding Ephemera and an article to follow is a little magic!; Another Nottingham Badge and, not least, the badge of the Retreat at York. Building our published history of the nursing profession.

Plus serious thanks to everyone who has contributed in any way to the page - especially for the moral support which is so important. Many thanks.

It's all in there (plus more!) and I hope that it will all meet with your approval and glowing accolades!!

Ps. The page delay - 72 hours was unavoidable. Sorry.  Our new MS Windows 10 still has bugs - if you find any please tell me.

Hi. Greetings.

Please note that the January 2016 News Page went on-line a short time ago:-

http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Newspages/SiteNews.htm

Once more there is a lot in here - plus a total of 55 Articles and three new additions this time.

http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Collections1/Collections53
http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Collections1/Collections54
http://www.schoolsofnursing.co.uk/Collections1/Collections55

The archive is here:-

News of progress (a lot) re: Our badge catalogue. This latter is the precursor to our open-access galleries and book start... There has been much progress - there are now 50 pages of 24 badges on-line - 2400 badge photographs right now. And a lot more to come. More photographs from the past - and an admission of guilt - I lost the contributors details and despite much searching I have not found her.; and a bumper 'collectors corner' on new acquisitions - Nottingham and Manchester Royal.  The badge of Sister (later Matron) Sarah Alice Claridge (Boer War and WWI) plus some superb ephemera featured in the last News (OCT 15) resulted in the location of a great niece.  I am returning all to her custody. A splendid opportunity!  Building our published history of the nursing profession.

Plus serious thanks to everyone who has contributed in any way to the page - especially for the moral support which is so very important. Serious thanks.

It's all in there (plus more!) and I hope that it will all meet with your approval and glowing accolades!!

Will.
Ps. The page delay - 24 hours was unavoidable and was due to replacement internet line work by our ISP. Sorry.  And my influenza!

Some interesting reading ,as usual,well done everyone.

As a postscript I have had a distant thought in relation to the matchstick & thread mentioned.Anyone of a sensitive nature should step away now but it is a common form of treatment for dealing with Guinea Worm;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracunculiasis
