Royal London Hospital League of Nurses Brooch

The original London Hospital badge was designed as a league badge for the newly formed League of Nurses in 1931;  ten years later Matron Alexander (later Lady Mann) requested that the Hospital present RLH Broach frontthe badge to all newly qualified nurses; which happened from December 1942.

It was recognised that some members of our league did not train at the London and did not have a London Hospital badge to wear, and others were anxious about their original badge falling off whilst wearing it. Therefore, it was decided to produce a brooch, which all members could purchase and wear if they wished, irrespective of where they trained.

RLH Broach rearThe brooch is made of silver coloured metal and white and red enamel, and measures 6cm wide x 2.5cm across the brooch. The reverse of brooch is 'embossed'; RLH League of Nurses'.

This brooch is available to league members, to purchase, either on a League Day for £7.50, or by post for £10.00. If you wish to receive one by post, please contact sarah24rogers(at)
