The rear of the badge is engraved 1895,Presented to Nurse E Rudd by the Committee for 10 years faithful service ,1905.This is likely to be Elizabeth Rudd who appears in the GNC register of 1925 ,living at 32 Surrey street,Norwich.She gained her certificate at St Mary's Hospital London in 1895/96 so must have then gone straight to work at the N&N?
