Leverndale Hospital Training School,Nurses Badge (Green)A small Mental Nurses Badge from what was Hawkhead Hospital in Govan.It changed it's name in 1964 to Leverndale Hospital so this badge post dates that.The design features the distinctive water Tower of the hospital in front of an orange five pointed star in a voided circle which bears the hospital title on a green band(I believe this may have been for SEN(M) training).Condition good,pin and clasp intact.NOTE this is significantly smaller than the earlier pattern of badge which I show in the last picture for a comparison.Height 24mm
