British Red Cross Technical Medal,Trained Nurse
A Technical badge for the British Red Cross Society with a scarce original Trained Nurse bar.The badges were introduced in 1914 and discontinued in 1966,and could be worn by members of Voluntary Aid Detachments with professional qualifications.This one is for a "Trained Nurse" which predates the later "State Registered Nurse".
The low issue number suggests that this may been issued prior to 1922 when state registration was introduced.
The enamel cross is in very good condition and is named on the rear to 1310 A.MacDonald. The medal is suspended from the original cream silk ribbon with red stripes.The brass pin back buckle brooch is in good order
(There are unfortunately several possible A MacDonalds so I cannot definitively identify the recipient of this particular badge.)
