General Nursing Council,Male Nurses Register Silver badge
A silver and enamel badge from the GNC for England & Wales.This being a rarer one in that it was awarded to to a Man on the Male Nurse register.In good clean condition with minimal surface wear,button hole fixture.It is named to F.Ellis S.R.N. 510. 22.11.40
(This is Fred Ellis who trained at the City of Bradford Municipal General(St Lukes)Hospital 1937-1940)

Height 27mm.Silver hallmark for 1938.Makers mark for Thomas Fattorini Limited Birmingham. The issue date is late for a silver badge as these were discontinued in favour of chrome as a wartime austerity measure in late 1939 early 1940.I assume that the GNC may have still retained stocks of the rarer Buttonhole fixture version for men and thus these may appear later than the female pin backs.
